ABOUT THE COLLEGE 



As the comprehensive public college of Southeastern 
Massachusetts, Bridgewater State CoUege has a responsi- 
bility to educate the residents of Southeastern Massachu- 
setts and the commonwealth, and to use its intellectual, 
scientific and technological resources to support and 
advance the economic and cultural life of the region and 
the state. 

While maintaining its historic focus on the prepara- 
tion of teachers, Bridgewater State College provides a 
broad range of baccalaureate degree programs through 
its School of Arts and Sciences, its School of Educa- 
tion and ADied Studies and its School of Business. At 
the graduate level, the college offers the Master of Arts 
and Master of Science in select disciplines, as well as the 
Master of Arts in Teaching, the Master of Education, the 
Master of Public Administration, the Master of Science 
in Management and the Master of Social Work. In ad- 
dition, Bridgewater State College prepares current and 
future educators for post baccalaureate and post master's 
hcensure. 

Through the extensive information technology and dis- 
tance education resources available at Bridgewater State 
College, including the unique John Joseph Moakley 
Center for Technological Applications, the college has 
made technology an integral component of teaching 
and learning on campus, and seeks to become a regional 
center for the enhancement of teaching through tech- 
nology for PreK-12 teachers and college faculty. 

The coUege's growing number of innovative academic 
programs helps to ensure that Bridgewater State Col- 
lege students are prepared to think critically, commu- 
nicate effectively and act responsibly within a context 
of personal and professional ethics. For example, BSC's 
Academic Achievement Center, and particularly its 
first-year advising program, is often cited as a model for 
other institutions to follow. At the same time, the Adrian 
Tinsley Program for Undergraduate Research represents 
an unparalleled opportunity for students to work closely 
with faculty mentors and to present research and creative 
work at regional and national conferences. 

Bridgewater State College benefits greatly from Con- 
nect, its regional partnership with other public higher 
education institutions in the region — the University 
of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, Massasoit Community 



College, Bristol Community College and Cape Cod 
Community College. Connect functions as a vehicle 
for coordinating the academic, administrative and devel- 
opment activities of public higher education in South- 
eastern Massachusetts, and introduces shared activities 
and programs among member institutions.

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE 

Bridgewater State College has grown from its first 
home - a single room in the basement of Bridgewater 
Town Hall in 1840 - to become the largest of the 
nine Massachusetts State Colleges and the fourth 
largest of the 29 public colleges and universities in the 
commonwealth. 

More than 9,700 full-time and part-time 
undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled at 
the college; the full-time faculty numbers 278, which 
represents a net gain of 27 since fall 2002; and more 
than 90 undergraduate and graduate programs are 
offered by the coUege s four schools (School of Arts 
and Sciences, School of Education and Allied Studies, 
School of Business and School of Graduate Studies). 
The college's physical plant of 235 acres includes 34 
academic, administrative and residential buildings. 

Alumni and friends have raised more than $13 
million to support faculty and student research, a 
myriad of undergraduate and graduate scholarships, 
international study opportunities and award-winning 
publications. These private investments complement 
growing levels of public support for the institution. In 
recent years, the college has committed $2.3 million 
for classroom upgrades and $7 million for an extensive 
library renovation. Two new 400-bed residence halls 
and a significant renovation and expansion of the 
campus' science building are scheduled for completion 
by the end of the decade. 

Vital to the long-term success of the institution 
is its recognition throughout the state and nation as an 
educational leader in the use of technology to improve 
teaching and learning. The first step in that direction 
took place in 1992, when Bridgewater State CoUege 
secured a SlO-miUion federal grant - at the time, the 
largest federal grant ever awarded to a state college in 
the United States - to build what has become the John 
Joseph Moakley Center for Technological Applications. 
Today, all incoming students are required to carry and 
use notebook computers. For two consecutive years, 
Yahoo! Internet Life magazine named Bridgewater State 
College among the "100 Most- Wired Universities 
and Colleges in America," and the coUege earned the 
number six spot on Intel Corporation's "Most Unwired 
CoUege Campuses Survey" in 2005. 

Together, these developments have combined to 
strengthen the coUege 's academic mission and expand 
its pubUc service role. They were buUt on a series of 
initiatives that trace back to 1960, a watershed year 
in the life of the coUege. It was then that the coUege 
began making a fuU-scale transition from an exclusively 



teacher-training institution to a comprehensive Uberal 
arts coUege, offering students a variety of academic 
disciplines at the undergraduate and graduate level. 

Until that time, the coUege had been relatively 
smaU - approximately 500 students - but enjoyed a 
national and international reputation for exceUence 
in teacher preparation. The preparation of the next 
generation of quahty teachers remains a top priority 
for Bridgewater State CoUege, as evidenced by the 
institution's celebration of 50 years of accreditation 
by the National CouncU for Accreditation of Teacher 
Education. 

During its time as a normal school, countless 
faculty and administrators nurtured the school carefriUy 
despite varying degrees of support from the state 
and overcame a host of difficult and sometimes dire 
situations, including a disastrous fire in 1924 that 
destroyed several of the few buUdings that existed on the 
campus at that time. 

WhUe the coUege 's earhest years were times of 
great chaUenge, the efforts never flagged to continue 
strengthening the curriculum, and each succeeding gen- 
eration left Bridgewater State CoUege stronger than the 
generation that went before. The thriving and dynamic 
institution we see today is the best evidence of the suc- 
cess of that enduring commitment.

THE UNDERGRADUATE 
ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE 



logically and clearly, and respond to the ideas of others is 
rooted in language skills. 



A diverse array of academic programs, close association 
with a superb faculty, extensive onUne and technologi- 
cal resources, opportunities to learn and grow outside 
of the classroom, and a supportive network of advisers 
and counselors are the key elements of the academic 
environment at Bridgewater State College. 

A wide variety of service-learning, study abroad, 
cultural and social activities complement the learning 
process and add rich dimensions to the total academic 
experience. 

The coUege is committed to fostering student suc- 
cess. Faculty and staff strive to help each student work 
to achieve her or his flill potential. The college's long 
tradition of academic excellence is built upon a founda- 
tion of challenging studies, an intellectually stimulating 
atmosphere, and a tradition of community service and 
partnership. 

Rapid advances in technology have treated new oppor- 
tunities for learning and require new skills in the ability 
to assimilate complex ideas. Bridgewater State College's 
undergraduate program provides fundamental knowl- 
edge in different areas of study as well as specialized, 
in-depth knowledge and skills in a major area. Each 
student acquires the knowledge and skills to communi- 
cate effectively, think logically, work quantitatively, and 
evaluate and assimilate information from a variety of 
sources. These skills are critically important to a life of 
learning and personal and professional growth. 

The core of the Bridgewater State College academic 
experience is the study of liberal arts. Every student, 
regardless of major, completes the core curriculum 
— a general course of study that provides a foundation 
for studies in each major. Distribution requirements 
include fine and performing arts, humanities, natural 
sciences and social/behavioral sciences. Most of the 
core curriculum is completed during the first two years 
of college, with the last two years focused on the major 
field of study. 

Emphasis is placed on reading, writing and oral com- 
munication skills. Business executives rank proficiency 
in communication as the most important skill an em- 
ployee can possess. The ability to collect and integrate 
information, organize one's ideas, express these ideas 



The coUege has a rich and varied array of majors, 
minors and program options. For the undergraduate 
student, there is a broad spectrum of more than 100 such 
possibilities. 

The Faculty 

Bridgewater State College has an outstanding faculty 
of women and men who are dedicated to teaching as 
a career, not just a vocation. Bridgewater State College 
professors are nationally recognized for their expertise in 
their fields of study. Ninety-one percent hold terminal 
degrees in their fields and many faculty members serve 
as consultants and advisers to corporations, non-profit 
organizations, school systems and goverrmient agencies. 
Other faculty provide leadership to professional societ- 
ies and conduct pioneering research in their respective 
fields. Students may work closely with faculty through 
a variety of means including internships, undergraduate 
research or the Honors Program.

TECHNOLOGICAL RESOURCES 

Bridgewater State College strives to remain in the 
forefront of educational technology. A wireless network 
across campus, an array of technology-enhanced courses, 
classroom and laboratories that integrate technology, a 
robust residence network service, and a program for stu- 
dent notebook computers combine to give Bridgewater 
State College students an advantage in our technologi- 
cally based society. 



The Computer Notebook Program 

The college's computer notebook program, initiated in 
fall 2004, builds upon the coUege's strengths in technol- 
ogy to engage all students at Bridgewater State College 
in a technology-rich educational e'xperience and to help

after graduation. Students can access the Internet using 
the college's wireless network, find and view course 
information and communicate with their classmates, 
and stay connected at home to keep up on e-mail and 
homework. 

Beginning with freshmen entering in the Fall of 2004 
and applying to all subsequent entering classes, the col- 
lege requires new full-time undergraduate students to 
own a notebook computer. This poHcy also applies to 
full-time transfer students whose accumulated credits 
place them in a graduating class for which notebooks 
are required. Students may purchase a computer on 
their own that meets the minimum specifications or 
may purchase their notebook through the college's 
agreement with a selected vendor offering competitive 
prices and the standard suite of office software. More 
information about the notebook program can be found 
at http://notebooks.bridgew.edu/ . 



The Online World: Blackboard and 
InfoBear 

Many of the courses at Bridgewater State College 
are enhanced by course Web sites developed through 
the Blackboard learning portal. Using their personal 
Blackboard account, students enroll in their course 
websites; gain access to course syllabi, materials and 
other information posted by the professors; engage in 
online discussions; collaborate with fellow students; 
view grades on assignments and tests in a course; and 
sometimes even take quizzes or prepare for exams in 
the online environment. 

InfoBear is a Web-based service provided by Bridge- 
water State College to allow quick and convenient 
access to each student's course enrollment, transcripts 
showing progress toward graduation, course grades 
and other information. Students also register for the 
following semester s courses through InfoBear, which 
is available through the college Web site and requires a 
student identification number and personal identifica- 
tion number. 



Web-Based Courses 

Learning in our society is no longer limited to the 
classroom, and it is important for lifelong learning for 
students to be able to learn from a variety of informa- 
tion sources. Bridgewater State College students have 
the opportunity to take courses delivered by a range of 
technologies. In addition to the many courses that use 
Blackboard to enhance the learning experience, the 
college also offers Web-based courses that are offered 
primarily over the Internet. Requirements include ac- 
cess to a notebook or desktop computer with printer 
and Internet connection, Web browsing capabihty and 
e-mail. Instructors determines the mix of technologies 
that are employed in their courses. For most web-based 
courses, a certain number of class meetings on campus 
may still be required. 

Wireless Network 

Bridgewater State College has provided wireless net- 
work connectivity across the entire campus since fall 
2001. Staff, faculty, students and visitors with wireless- 
enabled notebook computers are able to connect to the 
network from anywhere on campus, including class- 
rooms, labs, offices, lounges, the Hbrary and outdoors. 
This enables users to access the Internet, read e-mail 
and connect to all of the college's online resources at 
any time. Due to wireless access points being placed 
throughout the college campus, students can walk from 



one side of the campus to the other while remaining 
connected to the network. 



Residence Network 

The residence network (ResNet) service provides all res- 
ident students with high-speed Internet access, reduced 
long distance telephone charges, voice mail, and cable TV 
which includes HBO, NESN and other movie channels 
which air on Residence Life Cinema. Every month, 16 
recently released feature films are available for viewing. 

The ResNet program is handled by one payment each 
semester, which provides for all support needed to ensure 
the availability of these services. Further information 
on the ResNet program can be found at http://resnet. 
bridgew.edu/ . 

John Joseph Moakley Center for 
Technological Applications 

The Moakley Center has been supporting the technol- 
ogy needs of Bridgewater State College students as well 
as the region's educators and businesses since its opening 
in 1995. The Moakley Center is a technology-integrated, 
50,000-square-foot learning venue that focuses the 
power of technology on its guiding principle that educa- 
tion is a lifelong process. 

A 213-seat amphitheater features a fuU complement of 
the latest multimedia presentation technologies. Its tele- 
vision/video production facility grants access to digital 
editing and complete teleconference capabilities for 
students, businesses, and educators. Several multimedia 
training rooms offer the latest in technology-enhanced 
learning. 

A variety of technology-based resources and programs 
are housed in the Moakley Center. These include the 
RiverNet Watershed Access Lab; CityLab; the Teaching 
and Technology Support Center; a digital music class- 
room; the Center for the Advancement of Research and 
Teaching (CART); the GeoGraphics Laboratory; and the 
Center for Technical Education. 



OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEARN- 
ING BEYOND THE CLASSROOM 



The Honors Program 

The Honors Program at Bridgewater State College 
encourages gifted and highly motivated students to reach 
their highest potential through critical thinking, scholar- 



Note; See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the puMished version of this catalog. 



ship and research. Small classes and close student-faculty 
relations provide for the vigorous and thorough ex- 
change of ideas, while the program as a whole works to 
create an atmosphere fostering intellectual, artistic and 
academic achievement. 

The program does not require students to complete ad- 
ditional course work beyond the credit hours necessary 
for graduation; instead, students earn honors credits by 
taking honors sections of regular courses and/or honors 
coUoquia during their freshman and sophomore years, 
and by undertaking individualized research programs 
with faculty mentors during their junior and senior 
years. For information on funds available to support 
student research, see the "Adrian Tinsley Program for 
Undergraduate Research" below. 

Honors students meet with the director or assistant 
director once a semester to discuss their work in the 
program. For all honors work completed with a grade 
of B (3.0) or higher, students receive honors credit on 
their transcripts, and those who complete the program 
receive an honors degree — a goal worth serious effort 
both for the intrinsic satisfaction it brings and the ad- 
vantages it provides at a time of strong competition for 
graduate and career opportunities. 

Commonwealth and Departmental Honors 

Students can participate in the Honors Program in two 
ways: by undertaking all of the requirements listed for 
Commonwealth Honors or by undertaking the re- 
quirements listed only under Junior and Senior Years 
for Departmental Honors. Commonwealth Honors 
thus runs throughout a student's undergraduate career, 
whereas Departmental Honors takes place only in 
the student's last two years. Commonwealth Honors 
includes the requirements for Departmental Honors; a 
student might undertake only Departmental Honors if 
he or she transferred to Bridgewater State College or 
developed an interest in pursuing honors work after the

Programs" section of this catalog. 

The Adrian Tinsley Program for Un- 
dergraduate Research 

The Adrian Tinsley Program for Undergraduate Re- 
search fwww.bridgewedu/ atp/ ) provides opportunities 
to Bridgewater State College undergraduates who wish 
to pursue research, scholarship, or artistic work under 



the guidance of a full-time faculty or Ubrarian men- 
tor. Through ATP, students design and develop research 
projects, learn new research skills, gain a more sophisti- 
cated understanding of the naiure of academic research, 
and have opportunities to present their research and 
creative work at regional and national conferences. The 
outcome of the program is for students to graduate with 
the self-confidence, motivation and ability to conduct 
independent scholarship and research. 

The Tinsley Program supports a variety of undergradu- 
ate projects, conducted over the course of a semester, 
summer, or longer, involving research or other forms of 
scholarship or artistic work in all discipHnes.The project 
may include laboratory research in the physical and life 
sciences; research in education, mathematics and busi- 
ness; scholarship in the humanities and social sciences; 
and stage performances, displays, or research in the 
visual arts and design. 

The Tinsley Program provides year-round support of 
undergraduate research through a variety of competitive 
opportunities: 

Summer Grants are awarded to students for work done 
over 10 weeks of the summer on an in-depth, research 
project conducted under the supervision of a BSC 
faculty or Hbrarian mentor. The grant includes a stipend 
awarded to the student, who may also apply for ad- 
ditional money for research expenses, and a stipend for 
the faculty or hbrarian mentor. 

Semester Grants are awarded each semester to offset the 
costs of research-related supplies and travel. 
Travel Grants support students who present their 
research at regional or national conferences, and fund 
travel, lodging, registration and related fees. 
The National Conference on Undergraduate Research. 
Bridgewater State CoUege traditionally sends a number 
of students to the National Conference on Undergrad- 
uate Research (NCUR) which is held in different cities 
each year. Students may use their travel grants to attend 
the conference and present their work. 
The Undergraduate Research Symposium takes place in 
April each year in the Moakley Center and showcases 
undergraduate research through oral and poster presen- 
tations and displays. Faculty, staff, students, administra- 
tion and guests are welcome. 

The Undergraduate Review: A Journal of Research and 
Creative Work pubhshes undergraduate research annu- 
ally. For more information and submission guidehnes, 
see www.bridgew.edu/ atp/ ur.htm . 



The Bridge: A Student Journal of Fine 
Arts 

The Bridge is a journal of fiction, non-fiction, po- 
etry and art created and published by undergraduate 
students. Once each year, students are invited to submit 
their creative works, which are competitively selected 
by a student editorial board. For more information, 
contact The Bridge at: thebridgejournal@bridgew.edu, 
or at 508.531.2983. 



Internships 

Internships consist of both on and off-campus work 
experience with a site supervisor/ employer for aca- 
demic credit under the guidance of a faculty member 
or non-credit through the Internship Office. Intern- 
ships allow students to gain career-related experience 
while in coUege, an important factor in finding the first 
professional position. 

Students interested in internships should first check 
with their academic department if they wish to re- 
ceive credit. Credited internships are usually tied to a 
student's academic major. Students need to have com- 
pleted a specific number of credit hours and go through 
a formal approval process before credit can be awarded. 
To determine possible internship sites, students should 
check with their academic department as well as the 
Office of Career Services's Internship Program, which 
maintains a database of internship opportunities in the 
region. Some students who choose to do an intern- 
ship but do not need credit may want to meet with the 
career services internship coordinator to help locate 
opportunities, prepare for the internship interview, de- 
velop a cover letter and resume and learn important tips 
for getting the most from the experience. These services 
are offered to any student looking for an internship 
whether or not it is for credit. For further information, 
see the "Academic Programs" section of this catalog. 

Community Service and Service Learning 

Bridgewater State College believes firmly in the rel- 
evance and importance of experiential learning in all 
of its academic programs. Service learning is a teaching 
method that uses community service to help students 
gain a deeper understanding of course objectives, 
acquire new knowledge and engage in civic activ- 
ity. A number of faculty incorporate service learning 
into their courses. The college has established a center 
for Community Service and Service Learning in the 
Campus Center to develop community contacts and 
collect and disseminate information on service learning 
opportunities. 



In addition, various student leadership programs at 
Bridgewater State College include community service 
components. Projects include Habitat for Humanity, 
America Reads, Environmental Clean up Projects, Red 
Cross Blood Drive, Big Brother/Big Sister, AIDS Action 
Committee, Meals on Wheels and many more. 



Children's Physical Developmental 
Clinic 

For more than 30 years, Bridgewater State CoUege has 
sponsored the Children's Physical Developmental Clinic 
(CPDC), a nationally recognized academic program that 
fosters professional development, community service, and 
leadership qualities. The CPDC affords students from all 
majors a challenging opportunity for volunteering as c\i- 
nicians to work with children and youth with disabiUties 
between the ages of 18 months to 18 years. 

The aim of the clinic program is to improve the "total 
development" of children with disabiUties by enhancing 
vital physical, motor, and aquatic skiUs and patterns. In 
addition, the program stresses the improvement of self- 
esteem of children by strengthening emotional-social 
aspects of their personalities through successful involve- 
ment in play, recreation and sport activities. 

A hundred students serve as clinicians and support staff 
each semester making the CPDC the largest student 
organization on campus. Over the years, BSC students 
have determined that the CPDC not only augments 
their professional preparation, but upon graduation is 
most critical to them when seeking employment and 
entrance to graduate school. 



Exchange and International Programs 

Bridgewater State CoUege students can study at most 
universities in the world, including those in countries 
such as Brazil, Spain, France and Portugal. Bridgewater 
State CoUege has exchange programs in Brazil, Canada 
England and Japan. Students have the opportunity to 
study in Canada at more than a dozen institutions, in- 
cluding McGiU University. Scholarships are available, and 
financial aid may be used for aU travel programs. 

Through the National Student Exchange, students may 
spend up to one year attending a coUege or university 
in another state at the in-state tuition rate. The National 
Student Exchange directory describes more than 175 in- 
stitutions involved in this program. For further informa- 
tion contact the Office of International Programs, v^rww.

International Study Tours 

Short-term faculty-led study tours to international 
locations are offered for undergraduate or graduate 
coUege credit. Each course is designed by a Bridgewa- 
ter State College faculty member according to his/her 
regional and academic expertise, providing an oppor- 
tunity for students to explore, firsthand, societies quite 
different from their own. These courses, which vary in 
length from 10 days to five weeks, are offered during 
winter intersession, spring break and summer. Study 
tour destinations have included Japan, Peru, Cuba and 
Ireland. The Bridgewater-at-Oxford program offers 
three weeks of summer study at Oxford University 
in England with a choice of pohtical science/law, art 
history, Enghsh literature or English history. Students 
from all majors and academic classes are encouraged to 
participate. For more information contact the Office of 
International Programs. Maxwell Library, 508.531.6183

CAMPUS LIFE 



Getting Started: Orientation for New 
Students 

Bridgewater State College's orientation program has 
been designed to introduce new students and their fam- 
ilies to the campus community. Through collaborative 
efforts between the divisions of Academic Affairs and 
Student Affairs, orientation provides programs that are 
conducive to the academic and developmental success 
of new students. The goals of orientation are to develop 
and coordinate programs that promote academic suc- 
cess, to enhance personal and social development, and 
to provide families and their students with information 
about services, support systems and issues facing college 
students. 

Orientation is divided into two different programs. The 
initial program in June is a comprehensive two-day 
overnight introduction to the college with an emphasis 
on placement testing, academic advising, and registra- 
tion for fall classes. Students also have an opportunity 
to meet with faculty and staff and learn about the 
resources available at the college. A one-day concur- 
rent family program provides parents with information 
about services, support systems and resources for their 
students. 

The second program is prior to the opening of classes 
in the fall when students are given the opportunity to 
meet new friends, learn the traditions of Bridgewater 
State College and receive assistance with transition to 
college hfe.

For information about admission to graduate programs, 
please consult the "School of Graduate Studies" section 
of this catalog. 

Bridgewater State College seeks to admit students 
who give evidence of intellectual capacity, motivation, 
character and who have a record of scholastic achieve- 
ment. An effort is made to attract candidates of diverse 
academic, economic, racial, religious and geographic 
backgrounds. The admission requirements and pro- 
cedures are designed to assist the college to select a 
freshman class from those apphcants who can benefit 
from the educational opportunities at Bridgewater State 
College. 

Bridgewater State College does not discriminate on the 
basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, color, religion, age, 
or national or ethnic origin. In addition, no otherwise 
qualified handicapped applicant shall, solely by reason 
of handicap, be excluded from admission. 

FRESHMAN ADMISSIONS 
REQUIREMENTS 

Application Form 

Each candidate should submit the Bridgewater State 
College application. The form, aside from collecting 
biographical data, allows the candidate to provide ad- 
ditional information concerning their academic and 
extracurricular interests. The college prefers students to 
apply onhne at the college's Web site, www.bridgew.edu, 
but also accepts the Common AppHcation as well as 
other electronically formatted applications. 

High School Record 

Candidates must request an official transcript of their 
secondary school record be sent directly to the Office 
of Admissions. The strength of the applicant's curricu- 
lum, grades, weighted grade point average and class 
rank as well as the level of competition in the apph- 
cant's high school are taken into consideration. 

The secondary program should include the following 
college preparatory subjects: 



English (a) 
Mathematics (b) 
Science (c) 



4 units 
3 units 
3 units 



History/Social Science (d) 2 units 

Foreign Language (e) 2 units 

Elective Units (f) 2 units 

Related Courses (g) 4 units 

a. These must be college preparatory courses in com- 
position and literature, which include the develop- 
ment of reading, writing and comprehension skills. 

b. These must be college preparatory courses in such 
subjects as algebra, geometry, trigonometry, elemen- 
tary functions and mathematical analysis. A fourth 
year of mathematics is strongly recommended for 
students who plan to enter fields such as computer 
science, management science, mathematics, pre-engi- 
neering or the sciences. 

c. Two of these courses must include laboratory work. 

d. This requirement should include one year of United 
States history and government. 

e. Students are encouraged to elect additional years of 
foreign language study. 

f. Students should choose from additional college pre- 
paratory courses in EngUsh, mathematics, computer 
science, foreign language, natural and physical sci- 
ence, visual and performing arts and humanities.

business, communications, psychology and sociology. 

Students graduating from vocational-technical high 
schools may substitute vocational-technical vocabulary 
course work for the foreign language requirement even 
if foreign language courses are offered in their high 
schools. Two vocational-technical courses may be used 
to ftilfill the two required electives. 

Standardized Test Scores 

Candidates for admission to the freshman class must 
submit the results of the Scholastic Aptitude Test 
(SAT Reasoning Test) or the American College Test 
(ACT) . Candidates should have official score reports 
forwarded directly from the Educational Testing Pro-

For evaluation according to the provisions of Chapter 
344, students with learning disabilities are expected 
to submit verification firom their guidance office. In 
most cases, a copy of the student's current Individual- 
ized Educational Plan (lEP) is the appropriate verifying 
document. More specific documentation may be re- 
quired for academic advising and special services when 
students enroll. 

Chapter 344, Section 19 of the 1983 Acts and Resolves 
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts states that: "No 
resident of the commonwealth who has been diagnosed as 
being developmentally disabled, including but not limited to, 
having dyslexia or other specific language disabilities, by any 
evaluation procedure prescribed by chapter seventy-one B, or 
equivalent testing, shall be required to take any standardized 
college entrance aptitude test to gain admittance to any public 
institution of higher education in the commonwealth. Admis- 
sion shall be determined by all other relevant factors excluding 
standardized achievement testing. " 

Candidates who graduated firom high school three or 
more years prior to their planned entrance date are 
exempt firom the standardized testing requirement. 

Freshman Admissions Review 

Freshman admission to Bridgewater State College is 
selective. The Massachusetts Board of Higher Educa- 
tion has estabHshed minimum admission standards that 
require candidates to earn a "B" average for the required 
high school units mentioned above. Students whose 
average falls below this requirement can also meet 
the standard by the use of a sliding scale that begins 
with compensating SAT scores above 920, or an ACT 
composite score above 19. No student can be admitted 
whose high school grade point average falls below "C". 
Detailed information about the BHE admissions stan- 
dards can be found on their Web site, www.mass.edu. 
Admissions decisions at Bridgewater are based upon the 
strength of the candidate's academic profile as compared 
to the pool of appHcants. Generally, more than 6,000 ap- 
plicarions are reviewed for a freshman class of 1,300. 

Since Bridgewater State College seeks students who 
will contribute to the college in a variety of ways, other 
factors are considered in the admission decision. These 
include demonstrated leadership, participation in extra- 
curricular activities, motivation, maturity and special ap- 
titudes and talents. Letters of recormnendation and any 
additional supporting information a candidate wishes to 
submit are welcomed and encouraged. 



Special consideration is given to applicants out of high 
school for three years or more, students from education- 
ally disadvantaged environments, working adults, and 
candidates who exhibit exceptional potential. 

Interviews are not required. Students are encouraged to 
attend one of the many group information sessions of- 
fered throughout the year. Dates, times and a telephone 
reservation number are available in the Viewbook or on 
the college Web site, www.bridgew.edu. 

Additional information concerning admission proce- 
dures, application fees, standardized testing requirements 
for admission, notification date and deferred enrollment 
may be found in the Viewbook. Copies may be obtained 
from the Office of Admissions - Gates House, Bridgewa- 
ter State College, Bridgewater, MA 02325. 

TRANSFER ADMISSIONS 
REQUIREMENTS 

Bridgewater State College welcomes applications from 
qualified transfer students. To qualify for transfer admis- 
sion, a student must have earned 12 semester hours of 
transferable credit; otherwise the applicant is considered 
under freshman admission requirements. 

Transfer applicants will be evaluated on the basis of 
their previous college work and must request an official 
transcript to be sent from each college or university at- 
tended. Transfer applicants who have earned less than 24 
transferable credits must also submit to an official high 
school transcript and standardized testing results. 

It is expected that candidates for transfer admission will 
be in good standing at the last institution attended and 
will have earned a cumulative grade point average of 
2.2 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Students transferring lesshan 
24 semester hours of credit must present a minimum 
cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.

required for credit transfer. Courses that do not have a 
direct equivalent at Bridgewater State College may be 
counted as fulfilling elective requirements in the cur- 
riculum. Transfer students are required to fulfill the same 
degree requirements as any other student; however, any 
student who has completed the general education re- 
quirements of one of the other Massachusetts State Col- 
leges will not be subject to additional general education 
requirements at Bridgewater State College. One half 
of the required courses in major and minor fields must 
be completed at Bridgewater State CoUege. Students 
transferring from an accredited two-year institution are 
limited to 69 hours of transfer credit toward the degree. 
Students transferring from an accredited four-year insti- 
tution are Hmited to 90 hours of transfer credit toward 
the degree. 

Grades for courses taken at an institution other than 
BSC are not used to compute a student's grade point 
average. Only courses acutaUy taken at BSC are used to 
calculate a student's BSC grade point average. 

Joint Admissions Program 

Bridgewater State College participates with the Mas- 
sachusetts Community Colleges, Dean College, and 
Quincy College in Joint Admissions. This program 
guarantees admission to Brigewater State CoUege for 
transfers from participating institutions who are enrolled 
in pre-approved programs of study, providing the associ- 
ate degree is completed. Joint Admission students must 
maintain a cumulative grade point average at the two- 
year college of 2.5 or better to be eligible. 

Transfers indicate their desire to participate in Joint 
Admissions by contacting either the Admissions Of- 
fice or Transfer Office at their community college. A 
written apphcation for Joint Admissions can be filed 
upon enrollment at the two-year participating institu- 
tion. One semester prior to their planned enrollment 
at Bridgewater State College, Joint Admission students 
must file an Intent to Enroll form in lieu of a regular 
Bridgewater State College application. This form is 
available from the Transfer Counselor at the participat- 
ing colleges or the Office of Admissions at Bridgewater 
State College. To complete the review process, an official 
transcript of all college work completed to date at any 
prior institution(s) and the community college must be 
requested by the applicant. BSC's Joint Admissions dead- 
lines are November 1 for spring and March 1 for fall.

in section 1 will be applied toward the fulfillment of the 
Bridgewater State CoUege general education require- 
ments. 

A minimum of 25 additional credits wiU be accepted as 
transfer credits. These credits may be transferred as free 
electives, toward any additional Core Curriculum Re- 
quirements, toward the student's major, or any combina- 
tion, as Bridgewater State CoUege deems appropriate. 

Only coUege-level course credits consistent wdth the 
recommended standards set forth in the Undergraduate 
Experience publication are included under this com- 
pact. Credits awarded by the sending institution through 
CLEP, chaUenge examinations and other life experience 
evaluations for course credit may be included when 
the community college certifies that a student qualifies 
under this compact. 



22 



III. Credits Beyond the Associate's Degree 

To complete the baccalaureate degree, a student who 
transfers under this compact may be required to take 
no more than 68 additional credits unless: 

a. The student changes his or her program upon 
entering Bridgewater State College, or 

b. The combination of additional Core Curriculum 
Requirements, if any, and the requirements of the 
students major at the receiving institution total 
more than 68 credits. 

Under these circumstances, transfer students will be 
subject to the same requirements as students who be- 
gan their undergraduate education at Bridgewater State 
College. 

rV. Admission to Competitive Majors or 
Programs 

If because of space or fiscal limitations the receiving in- 
stitution does not admit all qualified applicants to a given 
major or program, the receiving institution will use the 
same criteria for applicants who are transfer students 
under this compact as it does for its native students. 

V. Student Appeals 

A student who believes that the provisions of this compact 
have not been apphed fairly has the right to appeal. 

Initially, differences of interpretation regarding the 
award of transfer credit shall be resolved between the 
student and the receiving institution. If a difference 
remains unresolved, the student shall present his evalu- 
ation of the situation to the institution from which the 
student is transferring. Representatives from the two 
institutions shall then have the opportunity to resolve 
the differences. 

Absent a satisfactory resolution, differences of inter- 
pretation may be presented to the State-wide Transfer 
Coordinating Committee. 

Decision and Notification Dates 

Early Action Program 

Freshman candidates may apply under the Early Action 
Program. Candidates need to have fialfilled the stan- 
dardized testing requirements on or before the No- 
vember test date and wiD need to have their appHca-

International Admissions 

International students who wish to apply for admission 
to the college should address a letter of inquiry to the 
Office of Admissions indicating their educational back- 
ground and intended area of study. Eligible candidates 
will be mailed a special international student admis- 
sion apphcation and asked to submit official transcripts 
and credentials. Students for whom English is a second 
language will be required to submit an official copy of 
results from the "Test of English as a Foreign Language" 
(TOEFL), unless they have at least two years experience 
in an American College or University. 

Documentation of financial support resources is re- 
quired. 

AH students applying as freshmen are required, in ad- 
dition to TOEFL, to submit official results of the SAT 
Reasoning examination. 

During the initial orientation/ registration period, 
international students' TOEFL examination records and 
academic transcripts vdll be evaluated for placement in 
1) appropriate English as a Second Language courses 
offered through the Department of Foreign Languages, 
and 2) in writing courses offered through the Enghsh 
Department. In addition to the above-mentioned man- 
datory records, other institutional placement exams may 
be required. Candidates should begin the application 
procedure no less than nine months in advance of the 
expected date of admission. 

Program for Registered Nurses 

Provisions have been made for graduates of three-year 
diploma schools of nursing to complete programs lead- 
ing to degrees in any of the academic majors being 
offered at the coUege. 

While encouraging registered nurses to pursue degree 
work for personal enrichment, the college supports the 
guidehnes of the National League of Nursing for the 
professional education of nurses. These guidelines cau- 
tion nurses whose career goals include the opportunity 
to assume supervisory and/or teaching responsibilities 
in the field of nursing, that degree programs to be pur- 
sued should be taken only at those institutions which 
offer degrees in nursing education. 

Through this special admissions program, students ac- 
cepted to the college are granted 60 credit hours for 
their school or nursing work. Where applicable, these 



credits may be used to meet general education, major or 
elective requirements. As with all others transferring into 
the college, registered nurses are expected to meet the 
same degree requirements as outlined in the "Under- 
graduate Academic Policies" section of this catalog.

candidates are subject to transfer admission deadlines 
of April 1 for fall entrance and November 1 for spring 
entrance. 

Admission is dependent on approval of the department 
in which the student wishes to pursue a major. Certain 
departments may recommend that the student pursue a 
graduate program with some prerequisite courses rather 
than a second bachelor's degree. Some majors have 
specific admission requirements and/ or hmited space, 
which may result in a student not being accepted into 
the desired major. 

For second undergraduate degree graduation require- 
ments, see the "Undergraduate Academic Policies" sec- 
tion of this catalog.

those dates the student may retain all financial aid. 



Bridgewater State College uses the Federal Return 
ofTitle IV Funds formula and dates to calculate the 
amount of institutional scholarship/grant funds a with- 
drawn student may retain. 

It is very possible that a student who receives financial aid and 
withdraws during the Return ofTitle IV funds period will owe 
a balance to the BSC Student Accounts Office and may be 
required to repay funds to the U.S. Department of Education. 

AH undergraduate, matriculated (degree seeking) stu- 
dents who withdraw from school must notify, in writing, 
both the Academic Achievement Center and the Finan- 
cial Aid Office. 

All graduate, matriculated (degree seeking) students who 
withdraw from school (program) must notify, in writing, 
both the School ©f Graduate Studies and the Financial 
Aid Office. 

Note: Federal, State or Institutional regulations, 
and/or action by the Board of Higher Education 
may necessitate revision to the above Return of 
Financial Aid Policy.

FINANCIAL AID 



The mission of the Financial Aid Office at Bridgewater 
State College is to assist students and parents in financ- 
ing their education. Our main goal is to ensure access 
for all who desire to pursue higher education. 

Financial aid award packages may consist of a combi- 
nation of resources such as grant, scholarship, tuition 
waiver, work-study and loan. An award package is 
always dependent on the availability of funds firom the 
state and federal government. Awarding of funds is 
based on "need" which is the difference between the 
cost of attendance (COA) and the Expected Family 
Contribution (EFC). 

The cost of attendance includes direct expenses such as 
tuition and fees, and also incorporates estimated costs 
for books and supphes, room and board, transportation 
and personal expenses. The expected family contribu- 
tion is determined by using the federal need analysis 
formula when the Free Application for Federal Student 
Aid (FAFSA) is completed and processed. The differ- 
ence between the two is the "need" which is met by 
financial aid funds.

computer. Applicants should print a copy of their confir- 
mation page when applying on line. 

Applications are accepted after the March 1" priority 
date, but awards will be made on a funds-available basis. 
Applications for the spring semester are accepted on a 
roUing basis. 

Students must reapply for financial aid funds each year 
they attend the College. Although the amount and type 
of aid offered may be changed due to funding availabil- 
ity, and program guidelines, an appUcant will continue 
to be eligible as long as financial need is demonstrated 
and the student maintains satisfactory academic progress. 
Please see the section of Satisfactory Academic Progress 
and Student Financial Aid. 

The college has strict guidelines regarding refunds of 
tuition and the distribution of financial aid funds for 
students who withdraw from the institution. Please refer 
to the refund section of this catalog. 

Financial aid is available for study abroad. 

For a complete Ust and description of financial aid 
programs see wvvnA^.bridgew.edu/financialaid/FinAid- 
Programs.cfrn or contact the Financial Aid Office at 
508.531.1341 for details. 



All students who desire consideration for financial aid 
funds must complete the FAFSA each year. FAFSA on 
the web (www.fafsa.ed.gov) is the easiest and fastest way 
to apply. The entire process can be completed electroni- 
cally when both the student and the parent apply for 
a Personal Identification Number (PIN), which allows 
the family to sign the application electronically. Apply 
at: www.pin.ed.gov.The PIN permits a family to sign 
and access the FAFSA year after year; there is no need 
to reapply for a PIN each year. 

For those who prefer, the paper version of the FAFSA 
may be obtained from the financial aid office, high 
school guidance office, or local college. Processing a 
paper version of the FAFSA may take up to four weeks. 
The financial aid office strongly encourages families to 
fde early, and to file on hne whenever possible. 

To obtain priority consideration for financial aid funds, 
the federal government must receive the student's com- 
pleted FAFSA by March 1" of the award year. This is a 
receipt date, not a postmark date. Electronic applications 
are considered received when you click the "submit" 



Satisfactory Academic Progress and 
Student Financial Aid 

Federal regulations state the maximum time firame in 
which a student must complete his/her educational 
program can be no longer then 150 percent of the 
published length for full time students. A student who 
fails to pass the total credits and/ or fails to achieve the 
minimum cumulative grade point average will not be 
ehgible to receive financial assistance for the future. 

To maintain satisfactory academic progress at Bridgewa- 
ter State College a student must be in good academic 
standing or in the process of fulfilling the conditions of 
an academic probation. In addition, a student must suc- 
cessfully complete (for each academic year) a minimum 
percentage of the total credits necessary to earn his/her 
degree or certificate or demonstrate evidence of mitigat- 
ing circumstances. Students who are unable to maintain 
satisfactory academic progress will be ineligible to re- 
ceive funding through any Title IV Federal Financial Aid 
Program including Federal Pell Grant, Federal Perkins 
Loan, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity 
Grant, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Student and 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the pubUshed version of this catalog. 



Federal Direct Parent Loan or through any of the Massa- 
chusetts Office of Student Financial Assistance Programs 
or the Bridgewater State College Grant Programs. 

To retain compliance with the satisfactory academic 
progress policy, a completion rate of 75% is required. 
Simply stated, a student must have completed 75% of 
all attempted credits during a review of their academic 
record at the close of each spring semester. This review 
includes all credits attempted by the student at Bridge- 
water State College. 

To determine the number of credits required to main- 
tain satisfactory progress, multiply the total number of 
attempted credits by 75 percent. 

In addition, a student must maintain a grade point aver- 
age according to the following schedule:

90 and above must maintain 2.00 or better 

Satisfactory progress will be reviewed on an annual basis 
at the conclusion of each spring semester. Students 
who have not met the minimum credit require- 
ments will be notified that they are ineligible to 
receive financial aid untU they have earned the 
minimum number of credits required for their 
year of enrollment. All aid already awarded will 
be cancelled. 

Reinstatement of financial aid eligibility may be ob- 
tained in one of the following two ways: 

1 . Students may acquire the minimum credits and/ or the 
QPA required for their year of enrollment by enrolling 
in additional courses during the summer or regular 
semesters; 

2. An appeal of this determination on the basis of the 
death of a relative, an injury or illness of the student or 
other mitigating circumstances may be filed in writing 
with the Financial Aid Office. 

Students appealing the decision should do so as soon 
as possible upon notification, whether or not financial 
aid was received, to ensure maximum eligibility on a 
funds-available basis. All appeals submitted are reviewed 



individually by the Satisfactory Academic Progress 
Review Committee, composed of the director of 
financial aid, the registrar or designee, and the director 
of the Academic Achievement Center or their designee. 
Students must submit an appeal each year that they are 
notified of their unsatisfactory academic progress. An 
appeal granted for a previous year cannot be appHed to 
subsequent years. 

Students admitted, or later identified, as physically hand- 
icapped, learning disabled or economically or educa- 
tionally disadvantaged and who do not meet satisfactory 
academic progress standards for financial aid purposes 
are encouraged to complete the appeal process. 

The determination of the committee is final and the 
students are notified of the action taken on their appeal 
before the start of the next semester. If a student's 
appeal is granted, that student's financial aid 
file will be reviewed at that time and aid will be 
awarded on a funds-available basis. If the stu- 
dent's appeal is denied, the student is not eligible 
to receive financial aid. 

This appeal process to determine financial aid ehgibil- 
ity must not be confused with the appeal process for 
academic dismissal firom the college. Each appeal process 
is separate firom, and independent of, the other. An ap- 
peal to the Satisfactory Academic Progress Committee 
will determine financial aid eligibihty only. An appeal 
regarding academic dismissal fi^om the college to deter- 
mine eligibility for reinstatement to the college must be 
made to the Academic Achievement Center or appro- 
priate school dean. Academic reinstatement does not 
automatically guarantee renewed financial aid eUgibility. 
The student must then contact the Financial Aid Office 
in order to be reconsidered for financial aid eHgibiUty. 

Student Employment 

In addition to the Federal Work Study Program, Bridge- 
water State College provides opportunities for employ- 
ment both on and off campus through the Student 
Employment Center located in Boyden Hall. Services 
of the center are open to all Bridgewater State College 
students regardless of financial aid status. 

Alumni ScHOLARsraps 

The Bridgewater Alumni Association provides scholar- 
ships to Bridgewater undergraduate students. These 
individual scholarships are provided by separate trust 
funds, each specifying the particular criteria to be uti- 
lized in selecting a recipient for that award. Application 



forms are available during February each year and may 
be accessed on the BSC Web site at www.bridgew.edu. 

Graduate Assistantships 

A Umited number of graduate assistantships are offered 
by the Graduate School, subject to the availabihty of 
funds, in areas associated with certain programs of the 
college. For details regarding graduate assistantships, see 
the "School of Graduate Studies" section of the catalog.

achievement on campus, many academic departments, 
clubs, and campus organizations sponsor scholarships 
and monetary awards to deserving Bridgewater State 
College students. A complete Usting may be found 
in the Bridgewater State College Handbook and further 
information regarding application procedures may be 
obtained in the Office of Student Affairs, or on the 
BSC Web site at www.bridgew.edu.

Core Curriculum Requirements 

Bridgewater State College's Core Curriculum was 
developed to serve as the educational foundation 
that all Bridgewater State College students will build 
on to complete their program of study. The Core 
Curriculum features a skills-centered, outcomes based 
distribution model of general education that allows 
students a wide choice of courses and the flexibility 
to integrate the requirements of their major with the 
broader, liberal education that is required of responsible 
citizens of the 2V' century. Students who complete 
the BSC Core Curriculum will learn a significant 
body of factual knowledge as well as understand the 
intellectual foundations, conceptual frameworks, and 
methodologies of the major academic discipHnes. 

The BSC Core Curriculum is composed of four main 
areas: 

1. Skill Requirements: All students are required to 
demonstrate proficiency in the skill areas of writing, 
logical reasoning, mathematical reasoning, and 
spoken communication. 

2. Core Distribution Requirements: All students 
will learn about the arts, humanities, the natural 
and social and behavioral sciences, global culture, 
multiculturalism, application of quantitative skills 
and the U.S. and Massachusetts Constitutions. 

3. Seminars: The First and Second Year Seminars are 
key features of the BSC Core Curriculum. These 
topic courses will allow students to explore an area 
of interest in a small, discussion-oriented course. 
The First Year Seminar is a writing intensive course 
designed to engage the student in college -level 
learning. The Second Year Seminar is either speaking 
or writing intensive and will engage students in the 
connections between classroom learning and the 
world. 

4. Requirements in the major: To connect the 
Core Curriculum with each major, students will 
complete one writing intensive course in their 
major and will be able to demonstrate information 
literacy and technology proficiency in their major.

Bridgewater State CoUege considers any student 
with less than 24 credit hours to be a 1'' year 
student and any student with 24-53 earned credit 
hours to be a 2"'' year student. 



Please note: 

• Only certain BSC courses have been approved for 
use in the Core Curriculum. Please see http:// 
www.bridge.edu/ corecurriculum for a complete 
list of approved courses and for the most up to date 
information regarding the Core Curriculum. 



• Students entering BSC in the fall of 2006 as first 
time students to BSC MUST follow the new Core 
Curriculum. 

• Students who have been at BSC but have stopped 
out or have been separated will initially be 
placed under the fall 2006 catalog and the Core 
Curriculum. HOWEVER, these students may 
petition to follow an earlier catalog. 

• All students must follow the requirements listed 
in a single catalog. Students may not use the 
major requirements from one catalog year and the 
General Education (GERs) or Core Curriculum 
requirements from another year. 

• Students who transfer more than 24 credits to BSC 
will have the CFYS (First Year Seminar) waived. 
Students who transfer more than 53 credits will have 
the CSYS (Second Year Seminar) waived. However, 
transfer students will still need to fulfill the Writing 
Intensive and Speaking Intensive requirements. 

• Appeals will be heard by the Associate Dean of Arts 
and Sciences. 

• Students who believe that they have met the 
outcomes for a BSC Core requirement by taking 
a course at another college should submit a Core 
Curriculum Substitution form to the Office of the 
Dean of Arts and Sciences. 



Directed Study 

The coUege permits students to pursue their interests 
through directed study. Such an undertaking involves 
independent thinking, hard work and creativity along 
with the guidance and help of a faculty member. The 
end result should be a paper or project accepted by 
the faculty member working with the student. Di- 
rected Study, which is limited to three credits with a 
maximum of six credits for graduation purposes and is 
primarily for upperclassmen, is available for the pursuit 
of independent work. Application forms for directed 
study are available from the student's major department 
and should be submitted to the department chairperson 
for his/her recommendation and then forwarded to the 
appropriate school dean for approval. 

Internship, Practicum, and Field 
Experience 

A number of departments within the college offer 
students the opportunity to enroll in an internship, 
practicum or field experience for academic credit. Such 
experiences provide students, usually in their third or 
fourth year, the chance to undertake a supervised prac- 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/ addenda/ as that information supersedes the pubUshed version of this catalog. 



tical experience in their field of study. Normally, field 
experience opportunities are available only during the 
fall and spring semesters. 

Students interested in such a field experience have 
the option of 1) consulting with their faculty adviser 
for details on programs available through the depart- 
ment, or 2) developing their own program proposals, 
subject to the approval of the department. If the field 
experience desired is proposed by the student, it is the 
student's responsibility to locate a faculty member who 
wiD provide the necessary supervision. 

Application and Selection 

Application forms for a field experience are available 
from the student's department. The completed form 
must be filed v^th the chairperson of the department 
in which the field experience is to be undertaken no 
later than the end of the first quarter of the semester 
prior to the semester in which the field experience is 
to be undertaken. 

The department will screen all applications in order 
to select students best suited for the positions available. 
The chairperson vAU forward the appHcation forms to 
the dean of the appropriate school for approval. The 
completed form must be received by the registrar's of- 
fice prior to the end of the drop/ add period to enroll 
the student. 

Applicants to internships must have completed at least 
54 credits with a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA. De- 
partments may set higher standards. 

Supervision and Grading 

Supervision, evaluation and grading of a field experi- 
ence is the responsibility of a faculty member in the 
department offering the program. A student may be 
removed from the program if, in the judgement of 
the faculty supervisor, it is in the best interests of the 
student, agency and/or coUege. Grades are based on 
written evaluations from both the faculty supervisor 
and the agency supervisor. 

Credit 

From three to 1 5 credits in field experience may be 
earned and applied toward graduation requirements. 
The number of credits which may apply toward the 
major will be determmed by each department. A mini- 
mum of 45 clock hours in the field is required for each 
credit hour granted. 



Compensation 

Normally, students may not be compensated except for 
minimal amounts to cover such expenses as travel. 

Honors Program 

The Honors Program at Bridgewater State College 
encourages gifted and highly motivated students to reach 
their highest potential through critical thinking, scholar- 
ship and research. Small classes and close student-faculty 
relations provide for the vigorous and thorough ex- 
change of ideas, while the program as a whole attempts 
to create an atmosphere fostering intellectual, artistic and 
academic achievement. 

The program does not require students to complete ad- 
ditional coursework beyond the 120 credit hours neces- 
sary for graduation; instead, students earn honors credits, 
as described below, by taking honors sections of regular 
courses and/or honors colloquia during their freshman 
and sophomore years, by completing honors work in 
certain 300 and 400 level courses during their junior and 
senior years, and by researching and writing an honors 
thesis in their senior year. 

Honors students are required to meet with either of the 
directors once a semester to discuss their work in the 
program. 

For all honors work completed with a grade of B (3.0) 
or higher, students receive honors credit on their tran- 
scripts, and those who complete the program receive an 
honors degree - a goal worth serious effort both for the 
intrinsic satisfaction it brings and the advantage it pro- 
vides at a time of strong competition for graduate and 
career opportunities. 

Commonwealth Honors 

Students can participate in the Honors Program in 
two ways: by undertaking all of the requirements listed 
below for Commonwealth Honors or by undertaking the 
requirements listed only under "Junior and Senior Years" 
for Departmental Honors. Commonwealth Honors runs 
throughout a student's undergraduate career, whereas 
Departmental Honors takes place only in the student's last 
two years. Commonwealth Honors includes the require- 
ments for Departmental Honors; a student might under- 
take only Departmental Honors if he or she transferred 
to Bridgewater State College or developed an interest in 
pursuing honors work after the freshman year. 

Freshman and Sophomore Years (for Common- 
wealth Honors) 

Students seeking Commonwealth Honors must accumu- 



late a total of 12 credits of honors level work at the 100- 
200 level preferably, but not necessarily, during their first 
two years. Honors credit at this level can be earned in 
two ways: by taking four three-credit honors courses or by 
taking a mix of three-credit honors courses and one-credit 
honors colloquia totaling 12 credits. Both honors courses 
and colloquia are described in the Course Schedule issued 
shortly before registration. 

Honors courses: Honors courses are specially-designed 
sections of regular 100-200 level courses. Most fialfill 
Core Curriculum credit and thereby impose no addi- 
tional requirements for graduation. These courses ofiFer 
small class size (usually capped at 15 students), more active 
discussion, greater student and faculty interaction, more 
challenging material, and often an emphasis on writing 
and oral presentation. Honors courses have recendy been 
offered in art, biology, chemistry, Enghsh, history, math- 
ematics, philosophy, political science and psychology. 
Honors colloquia: Honors colloquia carry one 
academic credit, meet once a week for 50 minutes, and 
culminate in a paper or scientific project which provides 
the major part of the grade. Minimum enrollment 
in each colloquium is two and the maximum is 12. 
Although most colloquia stand on their own, some are 
attached to regularly offered courses which form part of 
the student's normal program. Colloquia offer intense 
study in a wide range of topics not usually found at this 
level. 

f 

Whether in honors classes or colloquia, students are 
expected to maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average 
(CPA) of 3.3. Students whose CPA falls between 3.3 
and 2.7 may remain in the program for a further semes- 
ter after which they will be dropped if the deficiency is 
not corrected; students whose CPA falls below 2.7 will 
be dropped from the program at that time. In either 
case, whenever the GPA returns to 3.3, students may re- 
enter the program. Although the honors directors have 
discretion to retain students in the program who do 
not meet these requirements, by the time of graduation 
students must have attained a cumulative GPA of 3.3. 

Junior and Senior Years 

Students who have completed the 12 credits of hon- 
ors work described above and who have attained a 
cumulative GPA of at least 3.3 are eUgible to continue 
by entering a Departmental Honors program or, if the 
student's major does not offer Departmental Honors, by 
undertaking, through the Honors Center, an individu- 
ally designed interdisciplinary honors program (both of 
which require an appHcation, either to the Departmental 
Honors Committee or the Honors Center). 



The follov^ring departments offer Departmental Honors: 



Accounting and Finance 
Art 

Biology 
Chemistry 

Communication Studies 

and Theater Arts 
English 

Foreign Languages 
History 

Mathematics and 
Computer Science

BRIDGEWATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



Honors work at this level emphasizes independent study 
and research in the major, or combination of majors 
if interdisciplinary. Students are required to take nine 
credits of honors work at the 300-400 level and can do 
so by combining Honors Contracts and the Honors Thesis. 
A student can earn honors credit in an upper-division 
course by submitting an Honors Contract, in which 
the student and instructor devise an advanced project 
within the course that emphasizes independent research 
on a particular subject. The student then completes a 
special advanced project, under the instructor's direc- 
tion, in conjunction with the course. As a senior, the 
student researches and writes an honors thesis (earning 
three credits for "XXXX485 Honors Thesis") under 
the direction of a faculty member on a one-on-one 
basis; this can be done for either one or two semesters 
(we encourage two semesters, but students should discuss 
this with their Departmental Honors Committee and 
thesis adviser). Whether the thesis qualifies the student to 
graduate with honors will be determined by the Depart- 
mental Honors Committee or, where appropriate, by the 
student's InterdiscipHnary Honors Committee. For many 
students the honors thesis is the intellectual high point of 
the undergraduate experience - fascinating and exciting 
in its own right, and valuable as a preparation for graduate 
school or professional employment. 

Credit requirements for Commonwealth Honors may 
be summarized as follows: 

• At least 12 honors credits at the 100 or 200 level in 
three-credit honors classes and one-credit honors col- 
loquia; 

• Nine credit hours in honors course work at the 300 
or 400 level obtained by undertaking honors contracts 
(three credits each semester). Forms for honors con- 
tracts and the honors thesis can be picked up from the 
Honors Center or your department office and should

45 



be filled out, signed, and returned to the Honors 
Center during the first two weeks of the semester); 
• A public presentation of the thesis work at some cam- 
pus forum, such as a department event or the Under- 
graduate Research Symposium held each April. 

Students who complete the program will have the 
phrase "vdth Commonwealth Honors" entered on 
their transcripts. 

Departmental Honors 

Students wishing to undertake only upper-division 
Honors work can apply to their major department to 
do departmental honors around the end of the sopho- 
more or beginning of the junior year, and should com- 
plete those requirements listed above under "Junior and 
Senior Years." For specific requirements and expecta- 
tions, please consult your Departmental Honors Com- 
mittee or request a copy of the Departmental Honors 
Programs brochure from the Honors Center. 

Scholarships 

Bridgewater State CoUege offers a variety of academic 
scholarships ranging from presidential and Tsongas 
scholarships, administered by the Office of Admissions, 
to the more specialized scholarships described on the 
Student Affairs Web site www.bridgew.edu/student 
affairs. Of particular interest to students in the Honors 
Program is the Adrian Tinsley Program for Under- 
graduate Research which offers generous financial sup- 
port for students' research. Full details concerning this 
program are available in the Honors Center. 

Honors Center 

Students in the program have access throughout the 
year to the Honors Center in the Academic Achieve- 
ment Center on the ground floor of Maxwell Library. 
Designed as a study area and meeting place for students 
in the honors program, the center has large work 
tables, comfortable chairs, computers, a refrigerator 
and a lending library. Students will also find copies of 
past honors theses written by BSC honors students; 
information about Fulbright, Goldwater and other na- 
tional scholarships; and announcements of national and 
regional undergraduate research conferences in which 
honors students are encouraged to participate. The 
center is open from 9 am to 5 pm on Monday through 
Friday during the academic year. 

Honors Program Dinner 

At least once each year the program hosts a dinner for 
students and faculty featuring an informal talk by an off- 
campus speaker of note. Recent speakers have included 



Congressman Barney Frank; historian and activist Howard 
Zinn;Thomas Payzant, superintendent of schools in Boston; 
Jack Beatty of the Atlantic Monthly; and Jeff Jacoby of The 
Boston Globe. The honon program also hosts extracurricular 
activities such as movie nights, theater excursions, and other 
events suggested by students in the program.

programs. See the section on "Interdisciplinary and 
Preprofessional Programs". 



UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC 
POLICIES 

POLICY DEALING WITH 
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY 

Institutions of higher education are dedicated to the 
pursuit of truth. In this pursuit, academic honesty 
is of fundamental importance. Faculty, students and 
administrators all have a responsibility to value, 
demonstrate and safeguard academic integrity as one of 
the college's most essential institutional values. 

The college has an obligation to establish and promote 
standards of academic integrity, and each member 
of the college community has the responsibility to 
understand, support, and practice them. When standards 
of academic integrity are followed, teaching and 
learning can proceed in an environment of trust. When 
such standards are violated, teaching and learning are 
in doubt and suspicion. Therefore, the best interests of 
the college community require that cases of alleged 
academic dishonesty be addressed seriously but 
equitably. 

At Bridgewater State College, academic honesty is 
expected of all students; plagiarism and cheating are not 
condoned and are subject to academic penalty, which 
may result in a failure for the course in which the 
violation took place. A violation may result in a reduced 
grade, suspension, or dismissal from the college. 

Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited 
to, plagiarism, cheating, and dishonest practices. The 
procedure for implementing an academic penalty for 
academic misconduct is as follows: 

• The instructor shall notify the student of the alleged 
violation, and they shall discuss the matter usually 
within seven days of the notice of the alleged 
infraction. The instructor and/or the student may 
request that the department chair, or other party 
from the College, be present at this meeting. The 
instructor shall notify the department chair and the 
associate vice president for academic affairs of the 
nature of the aUeged violation, the outcome of the 
meeting held with the student, and the penalty, which 
may include a reduced grade on an assignment or in 
the course, including failure. The instructor reports 
the case to the academic review panel, and may 
refer the case for review. The instructor shall inform 



the student that flirther action may be taken by the 
associate vice president for academic affairs, in cases 
of repeat offenses. The associate vice president for 
academic affairs will refer cases of repeat offenses to 
the academic review panel. 

• If the matter is not resolved, the student or instructor 
may request a hearing within five school days 
before the academic review panel, and the student 
and instructor, each with a representative serving 
in an advisory capacity, should either choose to 
have one, shall meet with the panel to discuss the 
alleged violation of college policy. The academic 
review panel shall conduct its investigations usually 
within 15 days following notification and shall 
follow the requirements of due process. Based upon 
the allegations or evidence received, the panel may 
recommend further sanctions, or no change in 
sanctions, or a reduction in sanctions, and will take 
into account any previous infractions only after it 
concludes its investigation of the present case. Further 
sanctions may include suspension or expulsion. 

Requests by students for hearings by the academic 
review panel will be considered on the basis of 
inappropriate sanctions, violation of due process, 
procedural error that negatively impacted the outcome, 
or new evidence that was not reasonably available at the 
time of the meeting with the instructor. 

The academic review panel will consist of three 
faculty members and two student members of the 
academic poUcies committee, appointed annually by 
the chairperson of that committee; three members must 
be present, including at least two faculty members, to 
constitute a quorum. In addition, the associate vice 
president for academic affairs will serve in a non-voting 
capacity as advisor to the panel and wiU maintain a 
record of reported violations by students. Multiple 
offenses by a student may have a bearing on the 
sanctions imposed by the panel. All evidence before the 
academic review panel is confidential. 

Any decision of the academic review panel shall be 
forwarded in writing to the associate vice president 
for academic affairs, who shall inform both the student 
and the instructor of the decision in writing by hand 
delivery or by return-receipt-requested, addressee-only 
mail. 

An appeal by either party shall be made to the vice 
president for academic affairs.

Al 



ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

In order for a matriculated or nonmatriculated student 
to avoid separation from Bridgewater State College, 
his/her cumulative GPA must remain above the proba- 
tion level as indicated below: 

EARNED ACADEMIC PROBATION SEPARATION 

CREDIT HOURS WARNING GPA BELOW THIS GPA 



0-16 2.0-2.19 Below 2.0 1.00 

17-31 2.0-2.19 Below 2.0 1.50 

32-46 2.0-2.19 Below 2.0 1.65 

47-61 2.0-2.19 Below 2.0 1.75 

62-89 2.0-2.19 Below 2.0 1.85 



90 and above must maintain - 2.00 
2.00 or better 

In order for a first semester transfer student to avoid 
separation from the college, his/her cumulative GPA 
must remain at 1.5 or above. After the first semester, a 
transfer student follows the table above. 



Academic Probation 

Students on academic probation are limited to 13 
semester hours during the semester they are on proba- 
tion. In addition, academic probation may involve 1) an 
adjustment in the student's academic load, 2) frequent 
interviews between the student and adviser for the 
analysis of difficulties and for checking the student's 
progress, 3) a stipulation that certain courses be taken 
to improve the student's academic performance, 4) re- 
strictions on the student's extracurricular activities, and 
5) other such precautions as are deemed advisable. 

Academic Separation 

Students who have been academically separated from 
the college may not take courses at the college (day 
or evening) for at least one academic semester. After 
this time period, students may apply for readmission 
through the admissions office. Although not required, 
it is recommended that readmission applicants give 
evidence of at least one semester of academic work 
with a 2.5 GPA or better at some other institution of 
higher learning. Students who have previously com- 
pleted courses at a college are reminded that a total 
of not more than 69 credit hours may be transferred 
from two-year institutions. However, course work 
taken elsewhere will not necessarily be accepted as 
transfer credit. An undergraduate matriculated student 
who is academically dismissed twice can only apply 
for readmission after a three-year period. If readmitted, 
the student is placed on academic probation and must 
achieve a minimum GPA of 2.0 in order to continue. 



The grade point average of the student will be resumed 
after readmission. Students who have left the college for 
a minimum of three years may be given special consid- 
eration upon written appeal to the vice president for 
academic affairs. 

Note: Academic readmission or reinstatement to the 
college does not guarantee renewed financial aid eligi- 
bility. The student must contact the Financial Aid Office 
to be considered for financial aid. 



Dismissal Policies 

Students are admitted to Bridgewater State College with 
the expectation that they will accept and abide by the 
standards of conduct and scholarship established by the 
faculty, administration and student governing boards. 
The college reserves the right to require students to 
withdraw who do not maintain acceptable academic 
standing. The college also reserves the right to dismiss, 
with due process, students who do not meet the require- 
ments of conduct and order or whose behavior is incon- 
sistent with the standards of the college. The Bridgewater 
State College Handbook outlines campus policies and may 
be obtained in the Office of Student Affairs. 



Satisfactory Academic Progress 

In addition to being in good academic standing (please 
see the preceding section), a student is defined as mak- 
ing satisfactory academic progress when the academic 
record shows successful completion of a specified 
number of credits per semester. Full-time students must 
earn a minimum of 10 semester credits each semester to 
achieve satisfactory academic progress. Students should 
note that many financial assistance programs require par- 
ticipants to make satisfactory academic progress in order 
to remain eligible. 

See the "Financial Aid" section of this catalog for ftirther 
information concerning satisfactory academic progress 
for financial aid purposes. 

AWARDING OF 
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES 



Commencement Ceremony 

The college conducts two commencement ceremo- 
nies annually, in winter and in spring. Students who 
complete requirements in August or December will be 
invited to participate in the winter ceremony. 

Degree Application 

Students who believe they are ready to receive their 
degree from Bridgewater State College are required to 



complete a formal degree application. These applica- 
tions are available in the Registrar's Office. Each student 
is responsible for meeting all degree requirements and 
for ensuring that the Registrar's Office has received all 
credentials. 

Recommended graduation application deadlines are 
hsted below: 

March 15: for winter/January graduation 
October 15: for spring/May graduation 
March 15: for summer/ August graduation 

Graduation Requirements 

Curricula leading to baccalaureate degrees are so 
planned that a student carrying 1 5 credit hours each 
semester will ordinarily be able to complete the require- 
ments for graduation in four years or eight semesters. 
Degrees will be awarded to candidates who have fulfilled 
the following: 

1. A MINIMUM of 120 credits, distributed according 
to the Core Curriculum Requirements, the require- 
ments of the declared major and any free electives. 
Satisfactory completion of all requirements for a 
bachelor's degree must be under a catalog in effect 
within eight years of the date of graduation. The 
catalog used, however, may be no earher than the 
catalog in effect at the time of matriculation or, in 
the case of a change of major or minor, no earlier 
than the catalog in effect when the major or minor 
was formally declared. 

Note: This poHcy does not apply to students enrolled 
in programs governed by state and/or federal regula- 
tions where current academic requirements may 
need to be met. Students should check with their 
departments where appUcable; 

2. A MINIMUM of 30 credit hours completed at 
Bridgewater State College, including at least one half 
of the required courses in the major and any minor 
field (excluding cognate requirements). 

Note: Not more than 69 credits earned at a two-year 
institution and not more than 90 credits earned at a 
four-year institution may be accepted in transfer by 
Bridgewater State College and appHed to the bac- 
calaureate degree; 

3. A MINIMUM cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) of 2.0 (or higher if required by the major at 
Bridgewater State College) and any other academic 
requirements of the student's major department as 
approved by college governance procedures; 



4. A MINIMUM cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) of 2.0 or higher in the student's major(s) and 
minor(s) requirements taken at Bridgewater State 
College. The major GPA includes only those cours- 
es required in the department in which the major is 
housed or in the major/concentration program in 
cases where more than one major/concentration is 
offered in a department. 

• The credit earned in an introductory college skills 
course may not be used to satisfy Core Curricu- 
lum Requirements nor may it be applied toward 
the minimum number of credits required for 
graduation in any major. 

• From any and all cocurricular activities in which a 
student might wish to participate and for which the 
college grants or may decide to grant credit in the 
future, a student may accumulate not more than one 
credit per semester, nor more than two per year, nor 
more than six per college career. 

Exception: All one credit cocurricular and physical 
education activity courses that are required for 
students officially enrolled in an approved major, 
concentration or minor may be counted toward 
graduation. 

• Students will not be allowed to receive their di- 
plomas or transcripts until all financial debts to the 
college have been paid. 

Conferral of a degree occurs when the registrar final- 
izes the student's academic record and confirms that aU 
requirements have been satisfied. Participation in the 
commencement ceremony does not constitute conferral 
of the degree. Similarly, inclusion of a student's name in 
such pubUcations as the commencement program does 
not confirm eligibility for the degree. 

Graduation Requirements - Second Degree Pro- 
gram 

Upon admission to a second undergraduate degree 
program (see the "Undergraduate Admissions" section 
of this catalog) , the student will meet with an adviser 
from the major department to plan a course of study 
based on the current requirements of that major. That 
course of study must be approved by the chair of the 
department and forwarded to the assistant registrar. Any 
changes in that course of study must also have the ap- 
proval of the adviser and the chair and be forwarded to 
the assistant registrar. If a student does not complete the 
course of study within four years of admission, the de- 
partment may require the student to change the course 
of study to reflect changes in major requirements. (Note: 
This time period does not apply to students enrolled in

49 



programs governed by state and/or federal regulations 
where current academic requirements may need to be 
met. Students should check with their departments 
where applicable.) 

The graduation requirements for a second degree are as 
follows: 

1 . The completion of a minimum of 30 semester 
hours at Bridgewater State College beyond the 
first degree with a minimum cumulative grade 
point average (GPA) of 2.0 (or higher if required 
by the major department). 

2. The completion of at least one half of the required 
courses in the second degree major (excluding 
cognate requirements) at Bridgewater State Col- 
lege. The remainder of the major requirements 
may be satisfied by the transfer of courses from 
another accredited institution. 

3. A minimum cumulative grade point average 
(GPA) of 2.0 (or higher if required by the major 
department) in the student's major requirements 
taken at Bridgewater State College. The major 
GPA includes only those courses required in the 
department in which the major is housed or in 
the major/concentration program in cases where 
more than one major/concentration is offered in a 
department. 

4. The completion of all cognate requirements for 
the major as outlined on the adviser-approved 
course of study. 

The Bridgewater State College Core Curriculum Re- 
quirements are satisfied by the student's first bachelor's 
degree, whether that degree was earned at Bridgewater 
State College or another accredited institution. Each 
student, however, must fulfill the state-mandated re- 
quirement in United States and Massachusetts Constitu- 
tions. 

Both the cumulative grade point average (GPA) and the 
major grade point average (GPA) for the second degree 
will be based on all grades received at Bridgewater State 
College, and all undergraduate courses will appear on 
one continuous academic record. A student must main- 
tain a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA in order to remain 
in good academic standing at the college and continue 
in the program. Upon completion of the second degree, 
the student will be eligible to attend commencement 
and graduate with honors based on the cumulative GPA 
for all undergraduate level work attempted at Bridge- 
water State College. 



Graduation With Honors 

Academic excellence for the baccalaureate program is 
recognized by awarding degrees summa cum laude (cumu- 
lative GPA of 3.8 or higher), magna cum laude (cumula- 
tive GPA of 3.6 to 3.79), and cum laude (cumulative GPA 
of 3.3 to 3. 59). The cumulative GPA determined for 
honors is based on all college-level work attempted at 
Bridgewater State College. 

The Commencement Program is printed prior to grades 
being submitted for the student's final semester; therefore, 
the Registrar's Office must print the honors designation 
that a student has earned up to the time of publication. 
The student's diploma and finalized transcript, however, 
will reflect the official honors designation based upon the 
student's final grade point average. 



GRADING SYSTEM 



The college uses the letter-grade system of marking to 
indicate the student's relative performance; A - Superior; 
B — Good; C — Satisfactory; D — Poor; 
F - Failure; IP - In Progress;W - Withdrawn. Grades in 
the A, B, C, and D ranges may include a designation of 
plus or minus. In computing averages, grades are assigned 
the following numerical values: 



A 


4.0 


B- 


2.7 


D+ 


1.3 


A- 


3.7 


C+ 


2.3 


D

B+ 


3.3 


c 


2.0 


D- 


0.7 


B 


3.0 


C- 


1.7 


F 


0.0 



Certain courses such as internships and practica may be 
offered on a Pass (P)/No Pass (N) basis. Courses whose 
credits cannot be used toward degree credits earned (ex. 
Freshman Skills courses) are assigned grades of Satisfacto- 
ry (S) /Unsatisfactory (U). No numeric value is assigned 
to grades P, N, S, or U. A symbol ofWA may be given to 
any student who ceases attending a course without with- 
drawing between the end of the drop/add period and the 
end of the withdrawal period. 

Grades for all courses (day and evening) at Bridgewater State 
College become a part of the student's record and are used in 
computing the GPA. 

Audit 

A student may audit (AU) a course to gain knowledge in 
a particular subject area without earning credit or a grade. 
Students auditing a course attend and participate in classes; 
however, they are exempt from examinations. The course 
is automatically designated AU and becomes part of the 
student's permanent academic record. Audited courses will 
not be used to fulfill degree or graduation requirements. 
Students must submit a completed Course Audit Request 



form before the close of the drop/add period. Forms are 
available at the Registrar's Office. 

Change of Grade 

If a student believes that a mistake was made in the origi- 
nal grade recorded for a course, the student may petition 
the instructor for a change of grade no later than the last 
day of final exams in the academic semester following 
that in which the grade was recorded. A change of grade 
will not be considered after this time. 

Dean's List 

The dean's list is pubhshed at the end of each semester to 
honor the academic achievement of full-time matriculat- 
ed undergraduate students. A 3.3 average for the semester 
is required with a minimum of 12 credits completed and 
no grades of "incomplete" (IN). 

Grade Point Average (GPA) 

The Grade Point Average indicates the student's overall 
academic average. It is calculated on both a semester and 
a cumulative basis. The GPA is computed by multiplying 
the grade numerical value received in each course by 
the number of credit hours per course. These totals are 
combined, and the result is divided by the total number 
of semester hours carried.

Incomplete 

An incomplete (IN) may be given at the discretion of 
the instructor. The time by which missing work must be 
made up, both in graduate and undergraduate courses, is 
also at the discretion of the instructor; however, this time 
period may not extend beyond the last day of classes 
of the academic semester following that in which the 
incomplete was earned. If a course is not successfully 
completed by this deadline, the incomplete will auto- 
matically be changed to a grade of "F" (failure), N (No 
Pass), or U (Unsatisfactory). 

All work must be completed prior to graduation, 
including resolution of any grades of incomplete. The 
record is finalized as of the date the degree is conferred. 

Mid- Semester Warning Notices 

Faculty may elect to send mid-semester warning notices 
to undergraduate students who are receiving less than 
a C- (1.7) average in any course at that time. It is the 
student's responsibility to meet wdth his/her adviser and 
the instructor of any course in which a warning is re- 
ceived. Since mid-semester warning notices are not issued 
by all instructors, students who do not receive notification 
are cautioned not to presume that they are maintaining a 
grade of C- or better. 

Repeat Courses 

Undergraduate students may repeat a course for which 
they receive a grade of C- or less. Although all courses 
wiU appear on the student's transcript, credit for the 
course will be awarded only once unless otherwise stated 
in the college catalog. For the first three times that a 
course is taken, only the most recent grade will be used 
to calculate the GPA, regardless of which grade is higher. 
All grades for courses taken the third and subsequent 
times will be used in the calculation of the student's 
GPA. [This policy does not apply to courses taken at the 
graduate level.] 

Please note that the Veterans Administration will not pay 
for a repeated course in which a passing grade has previ- 
ously been earned.

REGISTRATION AND 
ENROLLMENT POLICIES 

Attendance Policy 

Students are responsible for satisfactory attendance in 
each course for which they are registered. Satisfactory 
attendance shall be determined by the instructor within 
the context of this policy statement. The approval of 
excused absences and the assignment of make-up work 
are the prerogative of the course instructor. The college's 
health services does not make judgments about whether 
a student can attend class except in rare cases when 
attendance would be harmful to the student's health or 
the health of others. In general, students will be excused 
without penalty for reasons such as illness, participa- 
tion in official college events, personal emergencies and 
religious hoHdays. Students should consult with faculty 
members in advance of any absence whenever feasible. 

NOTE: If a student fails to attend the first three class 
hours of a course, the instructor has the option of delet- 
ing the student from the class roster. 

If a student has a concern with regard to the attendance 
pohcies or a faculty member has a concern about a 
student's excessive absence, he or she should confer with 
the chairperson of the department. 

Change/Declaration of Concentration 

To elect a concentration, students must complete a 
Concentration Declaration Form in the Academic 
Achievement Center. Students may change their con- 
centration at anytime by obtaining the necessary form 
from the Academic Achievement Center. 

Change/Declaration of Major for 
Freshmen 

All students who enter as freshmen must formally 
declare a major or choose the status of an undeclared 
major. The undeclared student should select a major by 
the end of the sophomore year. Freshmen may change 
their area of interest by obtaining the necessary forms 
from the Academic Achievement Center. Although early 
childhood, elementary education and special education 
majors may not be formally admitted into the teacher 
education program until the second semester of the 
sophomore year, they must confirm their continued 
interest in these majors by the same process used by the 
other freshmen for declaration of majors. In addition 
to their education program, students must also elect a 
major in the liberal arts. 



Change of Major for Upperclassmen 

Students may change majors at any time by obtaining 
the necessary forms from the Academic Achievement 
Center, securing the signatures of the department chair- 
persons involved, and fiHng the completed form with 
the Academic Achievement Center. 

Change/Declaration of Minor 

In order to be enrolled in any minor offered by the 
college, a student must declare the intended minor on 
forms available from the Academic Achievement Center. 
Students may change their minor at anytime by obtain- 
ing the necessary form from the Academic Achievement 
Center. 

Students planning on being certified as secondary or 
middle school teachers should declare their minor in 
secondary education during their freshman or sopho- 
more year. 

Certification that the requirements of the minor have 
been met is made on the Degree Application Card 
by the department offering the minor. Students must 
achieve a minimum 2.0 cumulative average in declared 
minors for graduation. 

Classification Designation 

Students are designated as being in a given classification 
on the basis of the number of credits they have earned 
for courses completed successfully. The list below shows 
the number of credits which must be recorded in order 
for a student to be designated as a member of a particu- 
lar classification. 

Students should understand that these are minimum 
totals of credits accrued. The normal course load is 15 
credits per semester, and it is this total which, main- 
tained over eight semesters, yields the 1 20 credits 
required as a minimum for the baccalaureate degree. 

For registration purposes, students wiD be classified 
based upon the total number of credit hours earned 
prior to the semester in which the registration is held.

Course Audit 

Students may audit courses under the guidelines noted 
below. The student will receive no academic credit for 
the courses nor will a grade be reflected in his or her 
cumulative grade point average. 

• A student may audit a course subject to the approval 
of his or her adviser or department chairperson and 
consent of the instructor. 

• A student is subject to conditions established by the 
department and/ or instructor for the audited course. 

• A student registering for credit has course enroll- 
ment preference over an auditing student. Therefore, 
a student must register for audit only during the 
drop/ add period by submitting forms provided by the 
Registrar's Office. A student's status as an auditor in a 
course cannot be changed. 

• A student may register for one audit course per se- 
mester. Exception may be granted by petition to the 
appropriate school dean. 

• A student receives no credit for an audited course. 
The student's academic record will reflect the course 
enrollment with the notation AU. 

• A student wUl be charged the same tuition and fees 
for an audited course as for a course taken for credit. 



Course Drops and Adds 

The Drop/ Add Schedule is as follows: 

• The Drop/Add period for 15-week semester 
courses ends after the 6'*' weekday of the semester. 

• The Drop/ Add period for 7-week quarter courses 
ends after the 3"" weekday of the quarter. 

• The Drop/Add period for 5-week surruner courses 
ends after the 3"* weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/ Add period for 10- week surrmier courses 
ends after the 5''' weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for nonregular courses ends 
one weekday after the first class meeting. However, 
students cannot add intensive - e.g., weekend or 
one-week - courses after the first class meeting. 

No adds or drops will be permitted after these dead- 
hnes. Drop/Add forms are available at the Registrar's 
Office during the drop/add period. It is advisable that 
students discuss changes in their schedule with their 
adviser. 



If students fail to drop courses appropriately, a grade of 
"F" may be entered on their academic record. This grade 
will be used in computing the GPA. 

Course Loads 

Full-time undergraduate students must carry a course 
load of 12 to 18 credit hours or the equivalent each 
semester. The typical course load is 15 hours. Students 
wishing to carry more than 18 credit hours must receive 
permission from the appropriate school dean prior to 
registration. Failure to carry at least 12 credit hours 
may jeopardize housing, financial aid status and athletic 
eligibility. 

It is recommended that students limit their course loads 
during the summer to six or fewer credit hours each 
session. 

It is recommended that students not carry semester 
courses during the session in which they enroll in stu- 
dent teaching. 

Credit by Examination 

The college encourages qualified students to meet 
certain graduation requirements through "Credit by Ex- 
amination." Currently the college will award credit for 
successful completion of the CoUege Level Examination 
Program's (CLEF) general or subject area examinations. 
In addition, certain departments offer their own ex- 
aminations for which credit can be awarded. Additional 
information can be obtained from the Test Center in the 
Academic Achievement Center, 508.531.1780. 

See the "Undergraduate Admissions" section of this 
catalog for further information concerning credit by 
examination. 



Intercollegiate Athletics Eligibility 

The following five rules govern intercollegiate athletics 
eligibihty for most students attending Bridgewater. 

1 . A student-athlete must be a full-time undergraduate 
student. 

2. A student-athlete must maintain a minimum of 12 
credit hours or the equivalent each semester. 

3. A student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade 
point average (GPA) of 2.0. 

4. A student-athlete must pass 24 credit hours (normal 
progress rule) or the equivalent in an academic year 
as a full-time student. 

5. A student-athlete must sign the NCAA student- 
athlete statement concerning eligibility, a Buckley 
Amendment consent and a drug testing consent. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog. 



Student-athletes are required to undergo both physical 
and orthopedic examinations prior to competing on in- 
tercollegiate teams. Specific information on these exams 
can be obtained either from the director of athletics or 
from the head athletic trainer. 

In addition, there are very specific requirements which 
must be met by transfer students from other four-year 
institutions, transfer students from two-year or junior 
colleges and students who have been involved in mul- 
tiple transfers. For information, please confer with the 
director of athletics. 

On a case-by-case basis, a student enrolled in a part- 
time academic course load, as an accommodation to a 
documented disability, will not be excluded from par- 
ticipating in athletic programs. The student shall foUow 
the normal petition and appeal processes through the 
director of athletics and recreation. 



Leave of Absence 

Undergraduate students who wish to interrupt aca- 
demic studies for one or two semesters (excluding the 
summer sessions), for financial, professional or personal 
reasons, need not officially withdraw from the college. 
Instead, students may take a one or two semester leave 
of absence by notifying the Academic Achievement 
Center no later than 30 days prior to the beginning of 
the first semester of leave. Such a leave of absence will 
not affect a student's academic standing, the program 
and degree requirements under which that student first 
matriculated, or one's future eligibihty for financial aid 
or housing, provided that the returning student meets 
specified guideHnes and deadlines for application for 
such services. Please consult the financial aid office in 
advance to determine the effect of a leave on aid. 



Make-up Tests and Examinations 

The procedure for making up an examination held 
during the semester is determined by the individual 
instructor or the department. If a student misses an ex- 
amination, it is the student's responsibility to notify the 
instructor immediately so that alternative arrangements 
may be made. 

The privilege of making up a final examination will be 
granted only when the cause has been the serious illness 
of the student or a member of his or her immediate 
family. All such excuses must be documented by a medi- 
cal doctor and submitted to the instructor of the course. 



Prerequisites 

Students must have the necessary prerequisite for each 
course. Prerequisites, if any, are indicated with the indi- 
vidual course listing and are enforced at the time of reg- 
istration. Prerequisite courses taken at institutions other 
than Bridgewater State College must be documented 
(transcript or grade report, and, in some cases, course 
description) prior to registration. 

Students who wish to enroll in a course without the 
prerequisite(s) must obtain a Prerequisite Override 
Form prior to registering for the course. The form 
must be signed by the chairperson of the department 
through which the course is offered and, in some cases, 
the instructor of the course. Students seeking an over- 
ride of professional education prerequisites for courses 
taught through the School of Education and AUied 
Studies must complete a Request for a Student to Take 
an Upper Level Professional Education Course Without 
Formal Program Admission form and obtain all required 
signatures. 

Registration 

Preregistration is held for returning, matriculated un- 
dergraduate, graduate and joint admission students in 
November for the spring semester and in April for the 
fall semester. During the advising period held two weeks 
prior to registration, a student meets wdth his/her adviser 
to review the student's progress toward meeting Core 
Curriculum Requirements and specific degree require- 
ments. A class schedule is developed, and the student's 
registration form is signed by the adviser. In the case of 
double majors, the form must be signed by both advis- 
ers. Preregistration is available via the Web and in person. 
Students who wish to register via the Web must secure 
electronic permission to register from their adviser at 
their advising session. Preregistration time is based on the 
student's classification (senior, junior, sophomore, etc.) at 
the close of the previous semester. 

The Course Schedule, published shordy before 

each registration period, provides specific registration 
dates and instructions on how to register. Students will 
not be allowed to register for courses until all financial 
debts to the college are paid and health records are up 
to date. 



Transfer of Credit After Admission 

In order for undergraduates to receive credit for courses 
taken at other accredited institutions, approval must be 
obtained in advance. 



Application forms are available in the Registrar's Of- 
fice. Applications for approval of a course from another 
institution should be accompanied by the appropriate 
catalog from that institution. Approval must be obtained 
prior to registering for class. It is the student's respon- 
sibility to have official transcripts sent directly by the 
institution to the Registrar's Office within six weeks 
after the completion of the course. 

NOTE: Not more than 69 credits earned at a two- 
year institution and not more than 90 credits earned 
at a four-year institution may be accepted in transfer. 
Grades for courses taken at an institution other 
than Bridgewater State College are not used in 
computing the student's GPA. 

Withdrawal From the College 

Forms for official withdrawal from the college may be 
obtained from the Academic Achievement Center lo- 
cated in the Maxwell Library. Professional staff from the 
Academic Achievement Center will assist in completing 
the process, including the review of alternatives available 
to the student. Should the student leave the college 
without giving official notification, failing grades will 
be recorded for all courses. After the tenth week of 
classes, grades will be recorded for all classes and the 
withdrawal will not be effective until the last day of the 
semester. 



3"' week of the session. 

• The Withdrawal period for 10-week summer courses 
ends the weekday following the completion of the 7* 
week of the session. 

• The Withdrawal period for non-regular courses typi- 
cally ends one weekday following the point when 
approximately 70% of the course has been completed. 
Students should consult the Registrar's Office for 
exact deadlines for withdrawal from these courses. 

• Students who are taking a course on-line or off- 
campus or who are non-degree seeking must meet 
established deadlines and procedures. 

No withdrawals will be permitted after these deadlines 
unless the student can demonstrate that extraordinary 
circumstances (i.e., sudden illness, a death in the family) 
have prevented the student from withdrawing by the 
published deadline. Consult the Academic Achievement 
Center for more information about withdrawals after the 
deadline. 

Course withdrawals will be indicated on the student's 
transcript with a "W" and will not affect the calculation 
of the student's grade point average.

College provides leadership, coordination and support for 
all academic departments engaged in graduate instruction. 
The graduate dean, the graduate faculty and the Graduate 
Education Council are responsible for the maintenance of 
appropriate standards for graduate degrees and certificates. 

The primary objective of Bridgev^ater State College's 
graduate programs is to increase to an advanced level each 
graduate students understanding of and competence in a 
designated field of study. By extending the students area of 
knowledge, research skills and creative talents, the graduate

Persons interested in pursuing a master's degree, certificate 
of advanced graduate study (CAGS) or post baccalaureate 
licensure program on either a Rill-time or part-time basis 
should request appropriate application materials fiom the 
Office of School of Graduate Studies. Students are respon- 
sible for being aware of the general policies, procedures and 
requirements for graduate courses and programs outlined 
in the following pages prior to enrolling in courses carrying 
graduate credit. 



For additional information relative to a specific graduate 
program, students should contact the appropriate department 
program coordinator in the department involved. 



GENERAL POLICIES AND 
PROCEDURES 



Students are responsible for all information given in the btest 
edition of the catalog. Students who have questions regard- 
ing the graduate regulations presented in this catalog should 
contact the School of Graduate Studies. 

Graduate students who experience problems pertaining to 
graduate policies, including academic performance, program 
requirements or other academic issues, may petition to have 
the matter considered through the established review process 
of the School of Graduate Studies: 

1. Submit a written appeal to the course instructor if the 
issue is course-related or to the academic adviser if the 
matter is program related. 

2. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the department 
graduate program coordinator 

3. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the appropriate 
school dean. 

4. If unresolved, submit a written appeal to the dean of the 
School of Graduate Studies. 

5. The dean of the School of Graduate Studies will submit 
graduate student petitions to the Graduate Education 
Council for review. (The Graduate Education Council 
consists of representatives fiiom the coDege's graduate 
faculty, administrators and graduate student body.) 

Academic Integrity Policy 

The School of Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State 
College, like all institutions of higher learning, considers 
academic integrity to be an important hallmark for graduate 
students and scholars. The importance of academic integrity 
and honesty, which is taught at the undergraduate level, 
continues to be even more vital for scholars and researchen 
at the graduate level, who find themselves writing seminar 
papers, research papers and theses. All graduate degree 
programs at Bridgewater State College require courses in 
research where conventions of documentation are taught. 
Graduate students, who are acquiring scholarly habits and 
skills in degree programs, must rely on the scholarship 
that has preceded them, and they must acknowledge the 



scholarship in their own academic work by adhering to 
the time-honored conventions of their discipline. In short, 
graduate students are entering a community of scholars and 
must respect the rules and traditions of that community. 
Sometimes, however, graduate students violate the accepted 
principles and policies of academic integrity and honesty. 
The dean of the School of Graduate Studies reviews any 
infractions of academic integrity. The following examples 
represent a partial list of serious breaches of academic 
integrity: 

1 . Plagiarizing any published or online source, including 
"Blackboard" and other online discussions, and 
claiming them as one's own; 

2. Not properly documenting quotations and paraphrases 
in one s texts, i.e. not using footnotes, endnotes, 
parenthetical citations or other conventional methods 
of documentation; 

3. Inadequate paraphrasing, with or without proper 
documentation; 

4. Copying portions of Internet sources without proper 
documentation and citations; 

5. Creating false documentation, i.e. purposely fabricating 
information used in references, endnotes and foomotes; 

6. Using or copying from another student's written work 
with or without the student's permission; 

7. Taking an examination for another student; 

8. Cheating on an examination; 

9. Purchasing a paper or assigmnent from an online 
source or another student and claiming it as one's own; 

10. Writing a paper or report for another student; 

1 1 . Altering or falsifying data; 

Serious violations of academic integrity are not Hmited to 
this list. Penalties for academic misconduct may include the 
following: 

1. A grade of"F","N", or"U" (as appropriate) in the 
course; 

2. A grade of "F" for the assignment being evaluated; 

3. The assigning of additional course work; 

4. Suspension from graduate programs; 

5. Dismissal from graduate programs. 

The procedure for implementing a penalty for academic 
dishonesty or misconduct, which includes, but is not 
limited to, plagiarism and cheating, is as follows: 
1 . The professor will notify graduate students of any 
alleged violations of the Graduate School's Academic 
Integrity Policy, and they shall discuss the matter in 
person, via e-mail or by phone within seven business 
days of the discovery of the alleged misconduct. (The 
professor may invite a third party to the meeting, if 



warranted.) If it is determined that academic dishonesty 
or misconduct has occurred, the students' advisers, the 
graduate program coordinators, department chairs, the 
appropriate school deans and the dean of the Graduate 
School will be notified by the professor in writing of 
the misconduct, the proposed penalty, and the outcome 
of the discussion with the students. A record of the case, 
including the letter from the professor, along with any 
supporting documentation, will be kept in students' fJes 
at the School of Graduate Studies. 
2. If the matter is not resolved through the initial process 
described above, students may file letters of appeal 
within five business days to the dean of the School of 
Graduate Studies, attaching any relevant documents.The 
dean will submit appeals to the Graduate Education 
Council (GEC).The professors and the students will be 
notified of the meeting times and dates and invited to 
attend a meeting of the Graduate Education Council, 
at which time matters will be reviewed. In conducting 
its reviews, the Graduate Education Council will follow 
the requirements of due process. Both students and 
professors can attend the meetings with representatives, 
who may serve as advisers or advocates. 

Under the direction of the chair of the Graduate Education 
Council, the GEC will review student appeals and make its 
decision, which shall be forwarded in writing to the dean of 
the School of Graduate Studies. Based upon the allegations 
or evidence received, the Graduate Education Council may 
recommend fiarther sanctions, no change in sanctions or a 
reduction in sanctions. The Graduate Education Council 
will take into account any previous infractions only after 
it concludes its investigation of the present case. Further 
sanctions may include suspension or dismissal. 

Students and professors involved will receive copies of the 
decision letter from the Graduate Education Council, and 
copies v^ be provided to the students' advisers, graduate 
coordinators, department chairs and appropriate school 
dean. A copy of this letter will also be placed in students' 
official files in the School of Graduate Studies. 



Academic Dismissal 

If students' GPAs remain below a 3.0 for two 
consecutive semesters, their academic progress is 
in jeopardy. The School of Graduate Studies makes 
every attempt not to dismiss students from academic 
programs, though prolonged GPAs below 3.0 may result 
in academic dismissal. 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the pubhshed version of this catalog. 



Academic Probation 

Any matriculated or nonmatriculated graduate students 
whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 will be notified that 
they are on academic probation.When graduate suidents 
are placed on acadeinic probation, they will receive a letter 
fir)m the School of Graduate Studies. This letter informs 
students that they should be mind£il that theu" GPA has 
fallen below a 3.0. Students should discuss the matter with 
their advisen. 



Academic Standing for Graduate 
Students 

In the courses which a graduate student offers to satisfy 
degree requirements the minimum standard for satisfactory 
work is a 3.0 average. 

Change of Grade 

If a student believes that a mistake was made in the original 
grade recorded for a course, they may petition instructors 
for a change of grade no later than the last day of fmal 
exams in the academic semester following that in which 
the grade was recorded. A change of grade will not be 
considered after this time. 



Change of Name and/or Address 

Students should prompdy notify the Registrar's Office of 
any change in name or address by using the appropriate 
form. Official legal documentation (i.e. marriage certifi- 
cate) must be presented. Forms are also available at the 
School of Graduate Studies or may be printed from the 
college Web site www.bridgew.edu/registrar/forms.cfrn. 

Comprehensive Examination 

In most graduate programs, graduate students must take 
comprehensive examinations that reflect the fuU ranges of 
their programs. The comprehensive examination is based 
upon the student's major areas of study, as well as related 
areas, and may include work done on a thesis. Students 
must give evidence that they can integrate information and 
ideas from the various areas in which they have studied. 
The comprehensive examination may be written, oral, or 
web-based, as determined by the students' departments. 
The academic department determines the format of its 
comprehensive examination. 

To be eligible for a comprehensive examination, students 
should have completed the course work specified by 
their major academic departments. Students who plan 
to take the comprehensive examination should file a 
Ojmprchensive Examination Request form in the School 
of Ciraduatc Studies, with a nonrefiindable comprehensive 
examination fee of S''»0 for master's degree candidates and 
$75 for CACiS can<ii(i-itcs. 



Checks should be made payable to Bridgewater State 
CoUege.The completed form and fee must be filed on or 
before the appropriate application deadline: 

October 1 November comprehensive examinations 

February 1 March/ April comprehensive examinations 

Ordinarily, comprehensive examinations are given during 
the months of November and March/ April. The academic 
departments set the specific date of the comprehensive 
examination. 

AH students who take the comprehensive examination will 
receive thefr results by mail in a timely fashion. 

Students who fail the comprehensive examination shall be 
given one additional opportunity to pass. If students fail a 
second comprehensive examination, students are subject 
to academic dismissal. Students should meet immediately 
with their faculty advisers or designated personnel to 
review weaknesses of their performances, and prescribed 
programs of study should be designed to help students 
prepare for the second examination. After students have 
made substantial progress in the additional work prescribed 
by the department, students will be allowed to retake the 
comprehensive examinations. 

Continuation or Interruption of Course 
Registration 

Graduate students have six (6) years to complete their de- 
gree programs. Should graduate students not enroll in coun- 
es during the fall or spring semesters or suimner sessions, 
students will be considered inactive. If students are deemed 
inactive and wash to register for courses, students should 
seek reinstatement by contacting the School of Graduate 
Studies at 508.531.2783 or gradschool@bridgew.edu. This 
policy is designated to ensure appropriate academic advising 
and counseling for all graduate students enrolled in degree 
programs as well as non-degree students. 

Course Drops and Adds 

The Drop/Add schedule is as follows: 

• The Drop/ Add period for 1 5-week semester courses 
ends after the sixth weekday of the semester. 

• The Drop/ Add period for seven-week quarter courses 
ends after the third weekday of the quarter. 

• The Drop/ Add period for five-week summer courses 
ends after the third weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/ Add period for 10-weck sununer courses 
ends after the fifth weekday of the session. 

• The Drop/Add period for non-regular courses ends one 



weekday after the first class meeting. However, students 
cannot add intensive — e.g., weekend or one-week 
— courses after the first class meeting. 

No adds or drops will be permitted after these deadlines. 
Drop/ Add forms are available at the Registrar's Office dur- 
ing the drop/add period. It is advisable that students discuss 
changes in their schedule with their adviser. 

If students fail to drop courses appropriately, a grade of "F" 
will be entered on their academic record. This grade be 
used in computing the GPA. 

Course Lx)ads 

Full-time graduate study for master s degree and CAGS 
students is defmed, for academic purposes only, as being 
enrolled in nine or more graduate credits in a given semes- 
ter. To be considered ftdl-time, post-baccalaureate program 
students must carry a course load of at least 12 credits each 
semester, as defmed under "Course Loads" in the Under- 
graduate Academic Policies section of this catalog. (The 
Accelerated Post-Baccalaureate program does not fall into 
this category.) 

Full-time graduate students may register for up to 15 
credits per semester and up to six credits during each of the 
two summer sessions. Students wishing to register for more 
than the maximum credit load must receive permission 
in writing from their graduate advisers and program 
coordinators. 

Immunization requirements apply to all fiill-time graduate 
students, regardless of age. To achieve fiill-time graduate 
student status, according to the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts Immunization Laws, students must receive 
nine or more credits fi^om one institution in any one 
semester, regardless of the location of the course or the 
actual dates that the course or internship is held. 

Proof of immunizations must be provided by a physician or 
a prior school and must include the dates of 

• two doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) after the 
patients first birthday and after 1967 

• one dose of tetanus diphtheria (TD) within the last 10 
years 

• three doses of hepatitis B 

Note: All newly enrolled part-time and full-time 

graduate smdents must provide proof of meningitis 
immunization or waiver. Proof must be: 

• documentation of one dose of meningitis immunization 
within five years or 



• sign the meningitis waiver at wvvw.bridgew. 
edu/HealthServices/Health%20Form%20and%20 
Meningitis%20 Waiver.doc 

The Health Services staff can assist you in meeting the 
requirements by offering immunizations and advice on 
how to be compliant with the law. Failure to comply 
places future registration for classes on hold until all 
requirements are met. 

Please call Health Services at 508.531.1252 to arrange an 
appointment. 

Course Registration 

Prior to the registration period for the fall, spring and 
summer semesten, a course schedule is published by the 
Registrar's Office. Hard copies of this schedule are mailed 
to graduate students and are available at the Registrar's 
Office and the School of Graduate Studies. The course 
schedule is also available online through InfoBear at 
www.bridgew.edu. Graduate students are not required to 
have registration forms signed by their advisers; however, 
graduate students should consult their advisers on a regular 
basis regarding their course schedules. 

Graduate course work is offered on either a fioll-time or 
part-time basis. Students should realize that it is not possible 
to set an absolute deadline for completing a graduate 
program due to such factors as the college's need to reserve 
the right to cancel any course for which there is insufficient 
enrollment and the need of the departments to offer courses 
on a rotating basis. 

Deadlines 

Graduate students are reminded to consult the annual 
college academic calendar for deadlines and dates for 
admission, comprehensive examination requests and 
applications to graduate. This calendar is printed in the 
college catalog, Course Schedule and on the college Web 
site. 

Grading System 

The School of Graduate Studies requires that matriculated 
graduate students maintain a high-level of academic 
standing as they advance in their degree programs. The 
grading system for graduate students at BSC is different 
fiom that of the undergraduate programs. Graduate course 
achievement will be rated A (4.0),A-(3.7),B+ (3.3),B (3.0), 
B- (2.7), C+ (2.3),C (2.0),C-(1.7),F (0),W (Withdrawn), 
IN (Incomplete), or AU (Audit). Some courses are 
graded on a P (Pass)/N (No Pass) or S (Satisfactory) /U 
(Unsatisfactory) basis. Refer to the "Course Descriptions" 
section in this catalog. 



BRIDGEWATER 
STATE COLLEGE 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/cataIog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog.

This grading sy'stem puts more pressure on graduate 
students to perform at a higher level than undergraduate 
students.Though graduate students may earn less than a B 
in a course, the overall GPA must be a 3.0 at the time of 
graduation. 

Graduate and Undergraduate Credit 

Counes at BSC with 500- and 600-level numbers carry 
graduate credit and are open only to graduate students. 

An undergraduate may request to enroll in a 500 level 
course for undergraduate credit. Approval is based upon the 
following criteria: 

• Students must be seniors in their last semester of 
course work. 

• Students' GPA must be a 3.5 or higher 

• Students' written requests must be approved by the 
chair of the students' major departments, academic 
school dean and the dean of the School of Graduate 
Studies. 

Certain designated 400 level courses may be taken for 
either graduate or undergraduate credit. The School of 
Graduate Studies guidelines for faculty teaching these 
courses indicate that advanced work should be required of 
graduate students taking 400 level courses. The guidelines 
recommend more rigorous examinations and more sophis- 
ticated term papers so that graduate students may take into 
account the different quantitative and qualitative standards 
associated wdth graduate study. 

Graduate Assistantship 

Bridgewater State College awards graduate assistantships to 
students who are fiilly admitted to a graduate program and 
who maintain good academic standing during the time of 
the award.The total award equals approximately $10,000 
per academic year, which includes tuition and fee remission 
for up to 24 credits per year plus a stipend. The stipend 
varies between $500 and $550 per month. Graduate 
assistantships are competitive and are determined on the 
basis of undergraduate and/or graduate grade point average, 
test scores, letters of recommendation, pertinent experience, 
educational preparation, interviews or a combination of 
these facton. Graduate assistants work in an academic 
department or administrative office of the college for 20 
hours per week. Assistantships are intended to encourage 
and assist superior students in pursuing graduate study and 
in completing the requirements for graduate degrees in the 
mimmum possible time. Graduate research assistantships are 
also available. 



Graduate Research Assistantship 

Fully admitted fioll and part-time graduate students may ap- 
ply to the Graduate Research Assistantship program. Gradu- 
ate Research Assistantships are designed to link a graduate 
student together with a professor in a meaningflil research 
project, which will be one semester or one academic year 
in duration. During the assistantship period, a graduate re- 
search assistant will work direcdy with a professor on a joint 
project, which will lead to a presentation at a professional 
conference and/or a joint pubHcation.The research assistant 
will have the equivalent of a "halT' assistantship, in that the 
student will work ten (10) hours per week with a professor, 
be paid a half-stipend ($2,500 per year), and have tuition/ 
fees remission for six (6) graduate credits per semester 

Graduation Appucation 

Students should check with their advisers regarding exit 
requirements for their academic program, as requirements 
vary for each program. Students who are nearing the 
completion of their graduate program requirements and 
who plan to receive a master's degree or CAGS in January, 
May or August, should complete an Application to Graduate 
form. These forms should be completed by students, 
approved by the faculty advisers and program coordinators, 
and submitted with the candidates' Graduate Program 
Proposal forms to the School of Graduate Studies office on 
or before the appropriate application deadline. 

February 1 May graduation 

June 1 August graduation 

October 1 January graduation 

Failure to file an application before the deadline may 
postpone degree conferral. 

Graduation Dates 

The college has three graduation dates (May, August and 
January). As of the May 2006 commencement, graduate 
students will have a separate commencement ceremony. 
Students graduating in August and January are encouraged 
to attend the May commencement. In order to participate 
in a commencement ceremony all required course work 
and exit requirements must be completed. No degree or 
certificate vvoll be conferred and no graduate transcripts will 
be issued unless all tuition and fees have been paid in foil. 

Graduation Requirements 

In order for students to exit from a graduate program, they 
must satisfactorily complete all credit requirements (with a 
minimum GPA of 3.0), and, in most programs, pass a com- 
prehensive examination. 



lNCO>a»LETE 

An incomplete noay be given at the discretion of the 
instructor. The time by which missing work must be made 
up, in graduate and undergraduate courses, is also at the dis- 
cretion of the instructor; however, this time period may not 
extend beyond the last day of classes of the academic semes- 
ter following that in which the incomplete was earned. 
Courses that are not successflilly completed by this deadline 
will automatically be changed to a grade of "F" (Failure) 
or"N" (No Pass). Candidates for graduation should note, 
however, that all work must be completed prior to gradua- 
tion, including resolution of any grades of incomplete, since 
as of the date the degree is conferred the record is finalized. 

Independent or Directed Study 

Graduate students are allowed to undertake an independent 
or directed study under the supervision of a faculty 
member. The coune Directed Study XXXX 503 (credit to 
be arranged) is designed for graduate students who desire 
to study selected topics in their fields. Directed study may 
not be used to substitute for courses that are required in the 
program or to study topics that are covered in required or 
elective courses in the program. 

Directed study follows the same registration procedures as 
all academic course work on campus; that is, arrangement 
for directed study must take place prior to the dme of 
registration with all forms completed and on file at the 
appropriate departmental office. Enrollment in directed study 
is limited to students who have been accepted to a graduate 
program at Bridgewater State College and who have 
completed a minimum of 15 approved graduate credits. 

Program and Course Prerequisites 

Program and course prerequisites may be required to 
ensure adequate preparation for graduate work in the area 
of study. In certain cases, program prerequisites may be 
fiilfilled after the applicant's acceptance by the School of 
Graduate Studies. Certain advanced courses may require 
that students have completed specific prerequisite courses. 

Research 

A graduate program may require enrollment in the coune 
Research XXXX 502 (credit to be arranged) or PSYC 
504 for Psychology for completion of original research 
undertaken by graduate students in their field. The students' 
investigations ordinarily culminate in a thesis.The number 
of credits awarded for the research may vary and students 
may repeat the coune until a maximum of nine credits in 
an MA program and six credits in an MAT, MEd, MPA, 
MS or CAGS program is earned toward the minimum 
credit requirements for the degree or certificate. Consent of 
department and formal application required. 



Satisfactory or Reasonable Progress 

Graduate students must make satisfactory or reasonable 
progress toward completion of their degree programs 
within the college's statute of limitations. Students who are 
not making such progress are subject to separation fi^om 
their programs.

All graduate program requirements, including the compre- 
hensive examination, must be completed within six years 
of the date of the student's acceptance. In addition, 
no graduate course offered for master's degree or CAGS 
credit may be more than six years old at the time program 
requirements are completed. 

If graduate students cannot complete degree requirements 
within the six-year limit because of extraordinary circum- 
stances, they may file written appeals, requesting a reason- 
able extension from the School of Graduate Studies. 



Thesis 

A number of departments require or recommend theses 
in master's degree programs. A thesis, which represents 
original research in a discipline, is especially recommended 
if students have fliture doctoral plans. At the same time, 
theses allow graduate students, working closely with thesis 
committees, to spend serious academic time researching a 
narrowly focused topic in depth and produce an original 
text, which may be pubUshable.The culmination is 
often a text that gives students great academic pride and 
satisfaction. 

Students writing master's theses must adhere to the 
following policies: 

(1) All graduate students writing master's theses must have 
a thesis committee, consisting of a thesis committee 
chair and two faculty readers. The thesis committee 
must be approved by the graduate coordinator. 

(2) The student writing a thesis must submit a Thesis 
Proposal Form, with a detailed proposal and signatures 
of the thesis chair, the two faculty readers, the graduate 
coordinator and the dean of the School of Graduate 
Studies. (The Thesis Proposal Form is available for 
download on the School of Graduate Studies Web 
page.) This form must be completed and signed in 
order for students to register for the appropriate 
research course, which is always the departmental 
XXXX 502 or PSYC 504 Research course. Students 
must register for at least six credits of XXXX 502, but 
the credits can be broken into smaller credit segments 
and taken over multiple semesters, particularly if 



Note: See Catalog Web Addenda at www.bridgew.edu/catalog/addenda/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog. 



students need a Jiill academic year to write their theses. 
Otherwise, students can register for the flill six credits 
during one semester. 

(3) After students obtain the necessary signatures, they then 
take the Thesis Proposal Form to the Registrar's Office 
to register for the XXXX 502 or PSYC 504 Research 
course. 

(4) Students who have registered for the XXXX 502 or 
PSYC 504 Research course and do not complete 
their theses in a semester will receive an Incomplete, 
which will be changed to a letter grade by the theses 
chairpenons once the theses are completed. 

(5) When the thesis is written and Jiilly approved by the 
three members of the thesis committee, the chairpenon 
and readen sign the "approval page" of the thesis, which 
is placed in the text of the manuscript. 

(6) The thesis committee chairperson will acquaint graduate 
students with the manuscript fonn and style used in 
their respective disciplines; graduate smdents writing 
theses should examine recent theses in their academic 
departments. 

(7) The School of Graduate Studies requires a minimum 
of four copies of the thesis to be bound: one for the 
Maxwell Library, one for the School of Graduate 
Studies, one for the students' academic department and 
one for the smdent. (Sometimes departments request 
an additional bound copy.) Students may also request 
additional bound copies of their theses. 

(8) Copies of the completed manuscript must be brought to 
the School of Graduate Studies, which will arrange for 
the binding of the copies. A charge of $12 for each copy 
will be paid by the graduate students. Students pick up 
their bound copies in the School of Graduate Studies. 

(9) Theses must be submitted tcfthe School of Graduate 
Studies before students are approved for graduation. 

(10) The Maxwell Library, which will catalog all theses, acts 
as the official archive for all theses written as part of 
graduate-degree programs at Bridgewater State College. 

Transfer Credit 

Transfer credit at the graduate level is defined by 
Bridgewater State College to include two distinct 
credit situations. First, transfer credit is defined as being 
any appropriate graduate credit taken at Bridgewater 
State College or at another accredited institution prior 
to acceptance to a Bridgewater State College graduate 
program. This credit includes appnipriate graduate credit 
earned in courses in which the student is enrolled at the 
time of acceptance. Second, transfer credit is defined to 
include appropriate graduate credit taken at an accredited 
institution other than Bridgewater State College after 
acceptance to a Bridgewater State College graduate program. 



It should be noted, however, that not more than six graduate 
credits, taken both prior to and after acceptance, can be 
transferred from other graduate schools. All courses to be 
used as transfer credit in a graduate program must have the 
approval of the advisers and program coordinators and be 
recorded on students' Graduate Program Proposal forms. 
Details regarding the matter of transfer credit as it applies 
to Bridgewater State College's master's degree and CAGS 
programs are provided below. Students are strongly urged to 
process their forms for transfer credit early in their 
graduate program, rather than waiting until they apply to 
graduate. 

Transfer Credit - Master's Degree and CAGS Pro- 
grams 

In most programs, students who have enrolled in 
appropriate courses at Bridgewater State College or at other 
accredited institutions prior to acceptance by the School of 
Graduate Studies may request that up to 12 graduate credits 
be accepted in partial fulfillment of degree requirements 
of which no more than six may be from other accredited 
institutions. 

Beginning in January 2007, the School of Graduate Smdies 
will limit the total number of graduate transfer credits to 
six (6) in programs of fewer than 40 credits. In programs 
requiring forty (40) or more graduate credits, students 
may request to transfer up to nine (9) graduate credits.The 
total number of transfer credits includes courses taken at 
Bridgewater State College before matriculation and/or 
graduate courses taken at another accredited institution 
before or after matriculation. 

Program exceptions are noted in the appropriate 
department sections of this catalog. These credits include 
any credits earned in courses in which students are enrolled 
at the time of acceptance. It does not include prerequisites. 
Approval is subject to the following conditions: 1) that 
not more than six credits bemg transferred are from an 
accredited institution other than Bridgewater State College; 
2) that a grade of B or better has been earned in all courses 
being transferred; 3) that courses being transferred have not 
been used to ftilfill the requirements of another degree or 
certificate; and 4) that graduate transfer credits may not be 
more than six years old at the time program requirements 
are completed. 

BSC has two forms used for acceptance of transfer credit. 
The Request to Accept Credit for Courses Taken at BSC 
Prior to Matriculation form is for courses being requested 
to transfer from within Bridgewater State College. The 
Graduate Transfer Credit Approval form is for courses being 



requested to transfer from an accredited institution other 
than Bridgewater State College. Blank copies of both forms 
are sent to students in their acceptance packages by the 
School of Graduate Studies. 

If courses completed at BSC prior to acceptance are to be 
applied toward fiolfillment of requirements for a master's 
degree or CAGS program, students must submit the 
appropriate Transfer Credit forms to the School of Graduate 
Studies once the form is approved by the students' advisers 
and program coordinators. All transfer courses are subject to 
the regulations governing time limits - no graduate course 
offered for the degree may be more than six years old when 
degree requirements are completed. 

After students have been admitted to graduate programs, a 
maximum of six graduate credits of grade B or better taken 
at institutions (accredited at the graduate level) other than 
Bridgewater State College may be transferred if approved by 
the students' advisers and program coordinators (although 
students should make every attempt to enroll in BSC 
graduate courses). It should be noted, however, that not 
more than a total of six graduate credits, taken both prior to 
and after acceptance, can be transferred from other graduate 
schools. An official transcript of courses taken at another 
accredited institution after acceptance must be sent directly 
to the School of Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State 
College. Students are responsible for submitting the transfer 
credit forms to the School of Graduate Studies once it is 
approved by the students' advisers and program coordinators. 

Withdrawal from Courses 

Students may withdraw fiom courses following the drop/ 
add period if they submit a Course Withdrawal form to 
the Registrar's Office by the appropriate semester deadline 
date, which is posted at www.bridgew.edu/Registrar/ 
dropaddwithdraw.cfin.The course withdrawal form must be 
signed by the course instructor Students should discuss any 
course withdrawal with their advisers. If graduate students fall 
below fiill-time status after withdrawing from a course, they 
should be aware that eligibility for some sources of financial 
aid and health insurance may be affected. 

The Course Withdrawal Schedule is as follows: 
•The Withdrawal period for 15-week semester courses ends 
the weekday following the completion of the 10th week of 
the semester 

•The Withdrawal period for 7- week courses ends the 
weekday follov^g the completion of the 5th week of the 
quarter 

•The Withdrawal period for 5-week courses ends the 
weekday follovmig the completion of the 3rd week of the 
session. 



•The Withdrawal period for 10- week summer courses ends 
the weekday following the completion of the 7th week of 
the session. 

• The Withdrawal period for non-regular courses typically 
ends one weekday foOowing the point when approximately 
70% of the course has been completed. Students should 
consult the Registrar's Office for exact deadlines for 
withdrawal from these courses. 

• Students who are taking a course on-Hne or off-campus 
must meet established deadlines and procedures. 

No withdrawals will be permitted after these deadlines 
unless students can demonstrate that extraordinary 
circumstances have prevented them from withdrawing from 
the course by the published deadline. Course withdrawals 
will be indicated on students' transcripts with a "W" and 
will not affect the calculation of students' grade point 
averages. 

Withdrawal from the College 

Students who decide to withdraw from a graduate program 
should notify the School of Graduate Studies of their inten- 
tions in writing as soon as possible. (Students should also 
consult course withdrawal procedures and refiind poUcies 
indicated elsewhere in the catalog.)

Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science 

The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree 
programs allow students to select from a number of 
areas and provide preparation for high school teaching 
(if secondary education is elected as a minor), graduate 
school, and fields of endeavor related to the major area 
of study. 

The decision as to whether to award the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts or the degree of Bachelor of Science 
shall be consistent with the standards in the student's 
major field as determined by the major department. 

In cases where students with double majors are eligible 
for a BA, BS and/or BSE, degree the student will select 
which major department will make the decision regard- 
ing which degree the student wUl be awarded. 

Students are advised to consult with their department 
chairperson or major adviser early in their academic ca- 
reer, but not later than the end of the sophomore year, 
in order to select a major and to be certain that course 
selection will allow graduation with the desired degree. 

Students should be aware that not all courses are offered 
in the evening. Students who are only able to enroll 
in classes 4:00 pm or after should consult the appropri- 
ate department chairperson for information about the 
availability of evening sections of courses required in a 
specific major, concentration and/or minor.

The department provides a strong liberal arts curriculum 
aimed at developing well-rounded, informed citizens 
with strong critical thinking abilities. Department pro- 
grams also impart skills to students, preparing them for 
a wide range of professions. The department encourages 
students to continue on to graduate study. 

Many department faculty members engage in research 
and the department encourages student-faculty col- 
laborative research. Students may also carry out intern- 
ships. The public archeology concentration requires that 
students participate in field work or laboratory work, 
and the department offers a summer archaeological field 
school. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts /Bachelor of Science 

Anthropology, the scientific study of humankind, allows 
students to build cross-cultural understandings through an 
intensive study of other cultures. Anthropology is tradi- 
tionally divided into five sub-fields: cultural anthropology, 
archaeology, physical (or biological) anthropology, ap- 
plied anthropology, and linguistics. A major in anthropol- 
ogy provides students with an understanding of societies 
and cultures throughout the world. Students majoring in 
anthropology are prepared to understand and work with 
individuals from other cultural settings, in health care, 
social services and public welfare agencies; or as teachers, 
museum curators, environmentalists, or in private indus- 
try. Students may select a BA in cultural anthropology 
or general anthropology, or a BS in public archaeology. 
Students may also combine a major in anthropology with 
an education major. 

Cultural Anthropology Concentration 

Students taking the cultural anthropology concentra- 
tion are introduced to three of the five anthropology 
sub-fields along with upper division area studies and 
topically focused courses. Cultural anthropology uses 
a comparative, cross-cultural method to understand 
human culture and its variations. Cultural anthropolo- 
gists draw on quantitative and qualitative data in their 
research, based on first hand participant observation 
fieldwork and interviews. 

Public Archaeology Concentration 

The public archaeology concentration provides the basic 
knowledge and training necessary for careers in contract 
archaeology and to the study of federal, state, and local 
legislation protecting archaeological resources. The con- 
centration relies heavily on cognate courses in geology 
and geography. 

General Anthropology Concentration 

The general anthropology concentration introduces 
students to four of anthropology's five major subfields: 
cultural, biological, archaeological, and applied anthro- 
pology. This concentration will expose students to a 
thorough understanding of the breadth and depth of 
anthropology, with an opportunity to see how anthro- 
pological ideas and methods are used to address human 
problems. Students will be well prepared to bring an- 
thropological skills to the work place or to enter a broad 
based graduate program in anthropology.

Students interested in teaching art must select a minor in 
secondary education. However, state -mandated require- 
ments for teacher training are subject to change, so it 
is necessary to consult with Professor Dorothy Pulsifer 
regarding up-to-date requirements. Prospective teachers 
of art are encouraged to join the student chapter of the 
National Art Education Association. 

Art majors not interested in an education minor are 
encouraged to select a minor complementing their 
interests within the major. Students who are not art 
majors, wishing to minor in art or art history will find a 
diversity of course offerings suitable to their interests and 
skills. To insure an appropriate selection of art courses 
in the major or minor, it is important that each student 
work closely with his or her art adviser or the depart- 
ment chairperson in program selection. 

A student majoring in art must achieve a grade of C- 
or better in all of the required courses within the art 
program, repeating courses if necessary to achieve the 
required grade. 

Students should be aware that typically there are addition- 
al hours outside of class to complete course requirements 
and expenses for materials and tools in studio courses 
beyond the required fees. Field trips to museums, studios 
and commercial galleries in the region, in New York City, 
and at other sites are regularly a part of many art history 
and studio art courses, and include additional costs. 

A gallery calendar of changing exhibitions is maintained 
throughout the academic year in the Wallace L.Ander- 
son Gallery within the art building. (One of these ex- 
hibitions is the student show, and art majors and minors 
are encouraged to set aside their best work to submit to 
this annual showing.) In an adjacent gallery is a con- 
tinuing exhibition of works from the permanent art 
collection. These gallery facilities offer a range of work 
that enhances classroom instruction. In addition, visiting 
artists and related art programs are made possible each 
year by a generous gift from the Class of 1936.

The department offers an undergraduate program lead- 
ing to the degree of Bachelor of Science or Bachelor 
of Arts and a graduate program leading to the degree 
of Master of Arts in Teaching. The goal of the under- 
graduate program is to provide students with broad 
backgrounds allowing for flexibility in making career 
choices. Students enrolled in the graduate program have 
the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge 
in more specialized areas. 

The Bachelor of Science program is designed to pro- 
vide the skills and knowledge necessary for employment 
in the biotechnology, environmental, health-related, and 
teaching areas, as well as providing a sound foundation 



for graduate or professional school. The Bachelor of 
Arts permits the student to explore personal interests in 
biology while developing the background needed to usd 
biological knowledge in association with a field such as 
sales, illustration, or elementary education. With care- 
ful course selection, this degree can prepare the student 
for the opportunities listed above for the Bachelor of 
Science. ' 

In addition to the broad array of biology courses, 
students have opportunities to join biology faculty in re- 
search projects, and to participate in internships, whether 
local, regional or out-of-state. 

The Department of Biological Sciences is located in the 
Conant Science Building. The department has 10 teach- 
ing laboratories, two lecture rooms, a faculty research 
area, a biology museum-seminar room, a bioassay labora- 
tory, an electron microscope laboratory and the South 
Shore Herbarium. The laboratories are well equipped 
to help students apply the theoretical principles of their 
courses. Equipment includes not only light microscopes 
but also two electron microscopes; there are microtomes, 
a Hquid scintillation counter, electrophoretic equipment, 
spectrophotometers and electrophysiological record- 
ing instruments. In addition, there is close cooperation 
between the biology and chemistry departments, so that 
other equipment may be shared. 

Located on the three acres next to the building are a 
20 X 80 foot greenhouse and the biology garden includ- 
ing a pond for aquatic plants. The greenhouse and gar- 
dens support laboratory and field work and are planted 
with specimens of horticultural interest. 

The location of the campus is a major advantage for 
conducting field work and ecological studies. Within an 
hour's drive of the campus are such diverse habitats as 
bays, salt-marshes, sandy beaches, rocky shores, estuar- 
ies, bogs, freshwater ponds, streams and rivers (clean and 
polluted), white cedar swamps, marshes, pine groves and 
hemlock groves. 

The department maintains and operates the Watershed 
Access Laboratory located in the John Joseph Moakley 
Center for Technological Applications. This laboratory 
is designed for use in teacher professional development 
in environmental education and for interdisciplinary 
watershed studies. 



School of Arts and Sciences 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

The two versions of the biology major are the Bachelor 
of Science in Biology (BS) and the Bachelor of Arts in 
Biology (BA). Each student majoring in biology will be 
assigned a departmental academic adviser from among 
the faculty of the department, and should consult with 
the adviser in regard to both the BS versus BA decision, 
and selection of courses. It is also important to fre- 
quently meet with the adviser to verify progress toward 
completion of graduation requirements. 

Bachelor of Science in Biology (BS) 

The department offers a BS degree program with three 
concentrations: enviroimiental biology, biomedical/mo- 
lecular biology and general biology. Within the biomedi- 
cal/molecular concentration, a student focuses on either 
the biomedical area or the molecular area. Within the 
general concentration, a student focuses on the stan- 
dard program or the high school/ middle school teacher 
preparation program. All BS students are required to take 
a core of courses consisting of General Biology I and 
II, Cell Biology, Ecology, Genetics and Microbiology. In 
consultation with the departmental adviser, each student 
selects additional courses that satisfy the requirements of 
his or her particular concentration. The Bachelor of Sci- 
ence is designed to prepare the student for employment 
as a biologist in a laboratory or field setting, or for ad- 
vanced training at a graduate or professional institution. 

The Environmental Biology concentration presents 
course work in such areas as wetlands biology, biomoni- 
toring, freshwater ecology and marine manunal biology. 
This program encourages students to use their electives 
to develop a diversified background of skills in earth 
science, geography and chemistry to complement their 
environmental interest and open future opportunities for 
internships and careers. Cooperative programs with com- 
munity environmental monitoring organizations such 
as the Taunton River Watershed AlUance allow students 
to gain practical experience while investigating actual 
environmental problems. 

The Biomedical/Molecular Biology concentration 
offers course work in such fields as histology, immu- 
nology, virology, embryology, biochemistry, molecular 
biology and electron microscopy. The two areas within 
this concentration are distinguished by their physiology 
courses: the biomedical area includes courses in Human 
Anatomy and Physiology, while the molecular area offers 
the option of Animal Physiology or Plant Physiology 
or Human Anatomy and Physiology. The biomedical 
area prepares students for health-related pursuits such 
as laboratory or clinical work, or health-professional 



schools. The molecular area is designed for students who 
plan on graduate study in cellular or molecular biology, 
and for those who seek a career in molecular biology or 
biotechnology laboratory work or research. Biomedical/ 
Molecular Internship opportunities are available in local 
hospitals and research laboratories as well as national 
agencies. 

The General Biology concentration is a broad program 
of biological study without defined speciahzation.The 
standard program provides a wide-ranging background 
together with courses that are tailored to the student s 
individual interests. The high school/middle school 
teacher preparation program is designed to provide the 
breadth of knowledge required for earning Massachusetts 
teacher hcensure and helping middle and high school 
pupils meet Massachusetts educational standards. Intern- 
ship opportunities for the standard program include 
local hospitals and research laboratories; environmental 
monitoring agencies, biological firms and organizations; 
and national agencies.

Honors Program 

The Departmental Honors Program in Biology provides 
an opportunity for highly-qualified biology majors to 
study biology and to conduct independent research in 
biology for honors credit. Interested students should 
contact the Department of Biological Sciences by their 
sophomore year for further information concerning 
eligibility and application. 

Undergraduate Research 

The Department of Biological Sciences provides the 
opportunity for students to participate in a true research 
experience, which is increasingly an advantageous com- 
ponent of undergraduate training. 

Each semester, BIOL 396 Research Problems in Biology 
and BIOL 497 Undergraduate Biological Research are 
offered by faculty members who direct and supervise 
either individuals or a small team of undergraduates in 
a research project. Students are intimately involved with 
experimental design as well as data collection, analysis 
and interpretation. The course culminates with a student 
presentation of the semester's work in a departmental 
seminar. These courses are often followed by a presen- 
tation at a professional scientific meeting. Research 
topics vary from semester to semester as different faculty 
members direct the research course; equally valuable 
training and experience in scientific methodology is 
obtained with all topics. The Department of Biological 
Sciences highly recommends this experience which adds 
a profitable dimension that is not provided by ordinary 
course work. 

Biology Internship 

Biology students interested in developing a field or 
laboratory experience through BIOL 498 Internship in 
Biology must meet the following criteria to be consid- 
ered: 

1 . Prior completion of at least 54 credits and at least two 
semesters of biology at Bridgewater State College. 

2. Minimum 2.5 cumulative CPA overall, and 2.7 GPA 
in biology. 

3. Prior agreement of a faculty member to act as faculty 
supervisor and oversee the specific internship. 

4. Submission of a completed internship apphcation 
form to the department chairperson by the middle of 
the semester preceding the internship. 

A list of internship opportunities may be accessed at the 
biology department Web site.

The Department of Chemical Sciences offers programs 
leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor 
of Science in Chemistry. These programs are designed 
to provide the skills and knowledge necessary to 
prepare students for successful careers in the chemical, 
pharmaceutical or biotech industries, for chemical 
research, teaching, oceanography and environmental 
science or for further study in graduate degree programs 
and professional schools. 

The department is housed in the Conant Science build- 
ing and maintains a suite of modern scientific instru- 
mentation that is used for both teaching and research 
purposes. This includes electrochemical equipment, a 
nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer, an 
atomic absorption spectrometer (AA), several infrared 
(IR) spectrometers, an ultraviolet-visible spectropho- 



tometer (UV/Vis), and a luminescence spectrometer. 
Other equipment includes a gas chromatograph (GC), a 
gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer and a high pres- 
sure liquid chromatograph. 

Students, staff and faculty maintain an atmosphere of in- 
formal interaction, both inside and outside the classroom 
and laboratory. Many students participate in Chemistry 
Club activities, which include seminars by area scientists, 
visits to academic and industrial laboratories, and special 
social events. Students are encouraged to participate 
in research and together with faculty and often attend 
American Chemical Society (ACS) and other profes- 
sional meetings throughout the country to present their 
research results. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science 

The chemistry major, with a concentration in biochem- 
istry, envirormiental chemistry, or professional chemistry, 
leads to the BS degree. These programs are designed for 
students who plan a career as a professional chemist or 
biochemist either immediately after graduation or after 
graduate work in a chemically related discipUne. Satis- 
factory performance (a 3.0 average or better) in any of 
these programs gives students the preparation required 
to obtain an assistantship or fellowship in graduate 
school. The biochemistry and the professional chemistry 
programs are both certified by the American Chemical 
Society. 

The chemistry major (without a concentration) leads 
to the BA degree. This program is designed for students 
who wish to prepare for fields such as medicine, dentist- 
ry, secondary school teaching, chemical or pharmaceuti- 
cal sales, pharmacy, environmental sciences or veterinary 
medicine. A minimum number of chemistry courses are 
required so that a program of other courses suited to the 
individual's interests may be developed in consultation 
with the student's adviser. 

Additionally, the department offers a chemistry-geology 
major jointly with the Department of Earth Sciences. It 
also participates in preprofessional advising for students 
interested in medicine and dentistry or oceanography. 
Additional information may be found in the "Interdis- 
cipUnary and Preprofessional Programs" section of this 
catalog.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM" 
Bachelor of Science 

The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice provides 
students with a solid background in criminal justice 
and criminology enabling them to develop a broad 
understanding of crime and the criminal justice system. 

School of Arts and Sciences 



The department developed the criminal justice program 
to meet the standards for criminal justice programs 
designed by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Educa- 
tion (BHE).The same standards are also affirmed by the 
Academy of Criminal Justice (ACJS) . Program standards 
emphasize the development of skills in critical think- 
ing, communications, conceptualizing ideas, and under-

♦Interdisciplinary Minor 

The Department of Earth Sciences offers several un- 
dergraduate programs in the earth and environmental 
sciences. Majors in the BS earth sciences program may 
elect a concentration in environmental geosciences or 
geology. The BA or BS earth science programs may also 
be taken as a double major with education. In addition, 
a program in chemistry-geology, and a preprofessional 
program m oceanography are available. 

The Earth Sciences faculty have a wide range of expertise 
within the geosciences and are actively engaged in 
research. The department includes faculty with extensive 
background and experience in the realm of field work, 
laboratory investigations, and theoretical work, including 
computer modeling.This diversity supports a modern 

School of Arts and Sciences 



curriculum and provides numerous opportunities for 
students to extend their education beyond the confines of 
the traditional classroom. 

Departmental faculty collaborate with scientists fiom 
other academic institutions to increase the number and 
variety of research opportunities for students. One member 
of the faculty is a Guest Investigator at the Woods Hole 
Oceanographic Institution. This appointment generates 
research opportunities for students in marine geochemistry, 
geology, and oceanography and includes sea-going 
expeditions. Another faculty member coEaborates with the 
Earth Resources Laboratory in the Department of Earth, 
Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts 
Institute ofTechnology.The latter collaboration creates 
student research opportunities in geophysics, which includes 
projects focused on earthquake generation. The research 
program of a third faculty member enables additional 
undergraduate research opportunities in the fields of 
petrology and tectonics with a focus on the geology of both 
the Appalachian and Rocky Mountains. The department 
also supports research wdthin the realm of sedimentology 
and paleontology. This includes course-based research 
projects involving both field investigations and laboratory 
analysis of sediment transport and deposition, particularly 
within the coastal environment. 

The department has a long history of active engagement 
within the cutting-edge field of remote sensing and 
supports these activities with both traditional courses and 
numerous applied research opportunities. In this regard, 
the department has been selected as the only one in the 
state college system in Massachusetts to participate in the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) 
sponsored Joint Venture (JOVE) program.This distinction 
led to collaborations with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory 
on remote sensing projects in Mexico, Alabama, and 
Southeastern Massachusetts and the Goddard Space 
Flight Center on bolide impacts. Similar research projects, 
performed by both faculty and undergraduate students, are 
on-going today. 

The department is committed to providing undergraduate 
students the opportunity to perform research with a 
faculty mentor. Each year, earth science students are 
involved in research and present their work at professional 
conferences organized by both regional and national 
geologic organizations.These opportunities help to propel 
our students into rewarding careers and excellent graduate 
prograins. 

Modern equipment supports the department's curriculum, 
including laboratory courses and undergraduate research 
projects.This equipment includes: (1) an X-ray 



Diffiractometer with powder cameras, (2) thin sectioning 
equipment; (3) new polarizing and stereoscopic microscopes; (4) 
a research grade Olympus polarizing microscope complete with a 
digital camera and image analysis software; (5) a proton procession 
magnetometer; (6) a seismic refraction unit; (7) an AS-I earthquake 
seismometer; (8) a Frantz Isodynamic Separator; (9) a 14-foot 
coastal research vessel; (10) a portable gamma-ray spectrometer; 
(1 1) a portable visible-near infrared spectroradiometer (12) a 
Sunsparc 20 UNIX work station; (13) a SunBlade 150 UNIX 
workstation; (14) GPS surveying equipment and (15) groundwater 
and stream water sampling/monitoring equipment. 

Finally, our close relations with the Department of Chemical 
Sciences have facilitated access to more specialized instrumentation 
used to investigate geochemical problems. This includes an atomic 
absorption spectrometer, an ultraviolet- visible spectrophotometer 
and a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer. 

In addition to course related laboratory spaces, the department 
has several smaller specialized laboratories to support research 
activities. These include a well-equipped remote sensing 
laboratory, a geochemistry and petrology laboratory, a fine 
particle sedimentology laboratory, and extensive facilities for the 
preparation of rock samples for numerous analyses. 

Earth sciences faculty are using Bridgewater State College's 
sophisticated computer facilities for classroom instruction, includ- 
ing demonstrating and displaying web-based and self-authored 
material and models. In a growing number of courses, students 
may submit assignments online, and in some courses, a majority of 
class time is spent in "virtual classrooms." To learn more, visit the 
department Web site at www.bridgew.edu/depts/EarthSciences/. 

The department boasts an active Earth Sciences and Geography 
Club that sponsors both local (Museum of Comparative Zool- 
ogy at Harvard University), regional (New Hampshire's White 
Mountains), national (Hawaii), and international (Canada, Iceland, 
Mexico) field trips. Students may also qualify for Sigma Gamma 
EpsHon, the national earth science honor society. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Earth Sciences Major 

The major in Earth Sciences is a solid broad-based program 
that provides the student with an understanding and apprecia- 
tion of the physical aspects of the earth and earth processes. 
Career opportunities for graduates exist in federal, state and 
local government service, industry, and environmental studies 
both with regulatory agencies and consulting firms. Teaching 
in the elementary, middle and secondary schools is another op- 
tion. Many of our earth science majors have been awarded full 
fellowships at leading graduate schools. In addition, the faculty 
have an extensive program of undergraduate research, and 
many students have presented the results of their undergradu- 



ate research at various national meetings. Some 
of this research has been funded, and students are 
encouraged to contact the faculty if interested. 
Internships are also available for those students 
desiring to prepare themselves for employment 
upon graduation. Interested students are encour- 
aged to contact the earth science/geology faculty 
- Drs. Cicerone, Enright, Krol, Saccocia and 
Sulanowski for more information about earth sci- 
ence/geology programs.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 
Bachelor of Arts 

The program of study for English majors aims to en- 
hance their appreciation and knowledge of literature 
and the writing process. Through exposure to signifi- 
cant literary works and to the tools for understanding 
and analyzing what they read and write, students will 
develop an understanding of the history and background 
of English-language literatures, including texts in transla- 
tion central to the discipline. Coursework in the major 

School of Arts and Sciences 



includes offerings in culturally diverse English-language 
literatures with a foundation in British and American 
traditions, embracing the writing process and criti- 
cal analysis. This background prepares Enghsh majors 
to enter diverse careers or to pursue graduate study. 
Bridgewater State College English majors have achieved 
success in a wide variety of occupations including 
teaching, banking, law, medicine, publishing, government 
service, public relations, technical writing, creative writ- 
ing, advertising and business administration. 

Within the English major, students may also pursue a

education.

such as American Studies, Canadian Studies, Irish- 
American Studies and Women's Studies.

Program Coordinator: Dr. Gregory Chaplin 

Master of Arts 

The Master of Arts degree in English (MA) is designed 
for students pursuing advanced studies in English. 
Candidates in this degree program come from varied 
academic backgrounds. Some simply want to extend 
their undergraduate background and complete an MA 
in English, while others are destined for a PhD and a 
college teaching career. A number of our MA students 
are already certified teachers in private or public schools 
and want an advanced degree in EngHsh for professional 
reasons. Finally, a small number simply want to acquire 
the MA as an end in and of itself. 

Admission Requirements 



1) 



A 2.75 undergraduate GPA based upon four 
years of work or a 3.0 undergraduate degree 
GPA based upon work completed in the junior 
and senior years.

and verbal parts of the ORE General Test. 
Three appropriate letters of recommendation. 
An undergraduate major in EngUsh, with at least 
24 credit hours in the discipline, is generally 
required for admission to this program. 
Students with deficient academic backgrounds 
are sometimes accepted into the program with 
the stipulation that these deficiencies be made up 
before work actually credited to the degree 
program begins. 



The remaining course requirements (6 credits) can be 
satisfied by completing one of the following two research 
options:

Students who choose this option will research and 
write a thesis, a work of independent scholarship, which 
demonstrates their ability to apply the knowledge and 
scholarly tools acquired during their degree work. Stu- 
dents who want to pursue doctoral work in English are 
strongly encouraged to choose the thesis option. Those 
who choose to write a thesis should consult the gradu- 
ate coordinator and adviser to select a thesis director and 
committee, then write a thesis proposal, and register for 
ENGL 502 Research (6 credits). The thesis must be fully 
accepted by the thesis director and thesis committee. 

Non-Thesis Option 

Students who choose not to write a thesis must com- 
plete the non-thesis option by fulfilling both of the fol- 
lowing requirements: 

1 . Students must enroU in two additional three-credit 
500-level elective courses in Literature and/or writing 
(Total 6 credits). 

2. Students are also required to submit two long seminar 
papers for evaluation by the Graduate Committee.

best seminar papers written during their graduate 
program of study. (These papers should be clean, 

i.e., without the professors' comments and grades.) 
Subject to the acceptance by the Graduate Commit- 
tee, the seminar papers wiO be placed in the student's 
folder in the department.

The Department of Geography offers an undergraduate 
major in geography. Majors in Geography may double 
major with education. Majors in geography may elect a 
concentration in environmental geography, geotechnol- 
ogy or regional and economic planning or double major 
with education. In addition, programs in chemistry-ge- 
ology, oceanography and urban affairs and planning are 
available. The department is also active in the Asian stud- 
ies minor, the Canadian studies minor, the Russian and 
East European studies minor, the urban affairs minor, 
and the women's studies minor, as well as the Graduate 
Certificate in Planning. See the "Interdisciplinary and 
Preprofessional Programs" section of this catalog. 

The department works actively with state and regional 
agencies on socioeconomic and environmental prob- 
lems. Past faculty research projects include coastal storm 
impacts, regional economic developments, transporta- 
tion planning, the impact of P(^Hs in New Bedford 
Harbor, and the search for water supplies for the next 
century. 



AdditionaUy, this department has been selected as the 
only department in the state college system in Massa- 
chusetts to participate in the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration (NASA) sponsored Joint Venture 
QOVE) program. Members of the faculty coOaborate 
with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (on multi-spectral 
and hyperspectral remote sensing in Mexico, Alabama, 
and Southeastern Massachusetts), the Goddard Space 
Fhght Center (on boUde impact), the U.S. Department 
of Transportation (on a national study of bus systems).

cation Center's Resource Center. 

A program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in 
Teaching (MAT) with a concentration in earth sciences 
is offered by the department. A MAT in Social Sciences 
with an emphasis on geography is available in coopera- 
tion with the history department.

and (14) groundwater sampling equipment. 

In addition, the department has a well-equipped remote 
sensing laboratory, and a cartographic laboratory with 
a large format digitizer planimeter, a climatological 
station with solar radiation recording instrumentation, 
a solar greenhouse classroom at the Burnell Campus 
School, an astronomy observatory, a wet geochemis- 
try laboratory, and a wet, as weU as dry, sedimentol- 
ogy laboratory. Finally, this department has access to a 
scanning electron microscope through the Southeastern 
Massachusetts Consortium. 

Earth sciences and geography faculty are using Bridge- 
water State College's sophisticated computer facilities 
for classroom instruction, including demonstrating 
and displaying web-based and self-authored material 
and models. In a growing number of courses, students 
may submit assignments online, and in some courses, a 
majority of class time is spent in "virtual classrooms." 
To learn more, visit the department Web site at www. 
bridgew.edu/ depts/ Geography. 

The department boasts an active Earth Sciences and 
Geography Club that sponsors both local (Harvard 
Mineral Museum), regional (New Hampshire's White 
Mountains), national (Hawaii), and international (Ice- 
land, Mexico) field trips. Students may also qualify for 
Gamma Theta Upsilon the international geography 
honor society. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM 

Geography Major (BA or BS) 

A major or minor in geography can provide a student 
with a way to examine the world with objectivity. The 
student can be trained to analyze the water-use and 
land-use opportunities in your communities, to under- 
stand the interrelated systems which keep the land and 
sea resources in balance, and to appreciate the varied 
ways in which people all over the world use those 
resources. Bridgewater State College graduates have 
found employment as planners, environmental analysts, 
teachers, market researchers, cartographers and adminis- 
trators. Many of our geography majors have gone on to 
earn advanced degrees from leading graduate schools. 

Students are invited to meet with any of the geography 
faculty - Professors Clark, Domingo, Hayes - Bohanan, 
Hellstrom, Rao, or Aten-to discuss the program.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Arts 

The department offers students a solid, liberal arts major 
as preparation for professional careers, for graduate study 
in other fields (hw and hbrarianship, for example) and 
for careers as museum professionals and public historians. 
It prepares students to teach history at the middle and 
high school level, and it provides a relevant and valuable 
Hberal arts major to students preparing for careers in 
elementary, early childhood and special education. It also 
contributes to the general education program by offering 
history courses to all students. 



The Department of History recommends that its majors 
select a minor or interdisciplinary program that will 
complement the major program. History majors electing 
secondary education are strongly urged to take elective 
courses in geography, political science, economics and 
the behavioral sciences in order to meet present employ- 
ment expectations. 

History Major 

No grade lower than a "C-" in a history (HIST) course 
may be used to fulfill the requirements for the history 
major. Students receiving a "D" or "F" in a history course 
may continue as history majors but must either retake and 
successfully complete the course (with a grade of "C-" or 
better) or must successfully complete another course that 
fulfills the same required "area" for the major. 

Required courses: 

• One course from among:

GRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Graduate Program Coordinator: Dr. Wendy Haynes 

Master of Public Administration 

The Department of PoHtical Science offers the Master 
of Public Administration (MPA) degree. The MPA pro- 
gram provides professional education to prepare persons 
for leadership roles in public administration and public 
affairs at the federal, state and local levels with flexible 
career opportunities in both the public and nonprofit 
sectors. 



Program Description 
Coursework 

The MPA program accommodates the needs of both pre- 
career students and in-career professionals by offering al- 
ternative program requirements that take into account the 
student s academic and professional background. Students 
with a bachelor's degree and no professional work experi- 
ence are expected to complete a 45 credit hour degree 
program (including six hours of professional internship), 
while in-career professionals are expected to complete a 
39 credit hour program. Up to six hours of appropriate 
graduate coursework taken elsewhere may be transferred 
into the degree program. All accepted students must 
enroll under the direction of their adviser in GRPP 501 
Graduate Program Planning, which is described under 
"Graduate Advisers and Graduate Program Planning" in 
the "School of Graduate Studies" section of this catalog. 

The MPA Curriculum 

Both pre-career and in-career students must complete 
a 24 hour core curriculum component of the degree 
program. These courses are: 

POLI 501 Introduction to PubHc Institutions and 
Administration 

POLI 510 Introduction to Research in PubHc 
Administration 

POLI 511 Program Evaluation and PoUcy Analysis 

POLI 521 PubHc Finance 

POLI 531 PubHc Personnel 

POLI 532 Organizational Theory and Behavior for 

Public and Nonprofit Institutions 
POLI 541 Legislative-Executive Relations 
or 

POLI 542 Administrative Law and Regulation 
POLI 591 Capstone Seminar in PubHc 
Management 

AH students are also required to complete 15 hours of 
electives of which 3 credits must be in POLI 506 PubHc 
Administration Module. Pre-career students must com- 
plete an additional six hours in POLI 598 Internship in 
PubHc Administration. 

Concentrations 

There are three areas in which an MPA candidate may 
concentrate; elective courses are available in each of 
the areas. As an alternative to earning a degree within 
a concentration area, students may pursue a generaHst 
MPA track. For students seeking to earn a degree in a 
concentration, a minimum of three elective courses must 
be taken in the substantive area. The substantive concen- 
tration areas are as follows: 



School of Arts and Sciences 



iFinancial Administrarion 

iMunicipal and Regional Development and 

Management 
Nonprofit Administration 

An additional three hours must be taken in three one- 
credit professional development modules. 

Admissions Information 

Detailed information about admissions is provided in 
the "School of Graduate Studies" section of the catalog. 
To be admitted to the MPA program, an appUcant must 
hold a bachelors degree from a four-year accredited 
college or university. If the degree has not yet been 
awarded at the time of application, the successfiil ap- 
phcant must be nearing completion of the bachelor's 
degree. The admissions process will also require an 
undergraduate GPA of 2.75, an acceptable ORE score 
and an interview with the MPA program faculty. (Please 
note: To receive a clear admit status, MPA appHcants 
must have a composite score of 900 or greater on 
the quantitative and verbal parts of the ORE General 
Test. To receive a conditional acceptance, MPA appli- 
cants must have a composite score of 700-899 on the 
quantitative and verbal parts of the GRE General Test.) 
Students should submit a resume and three letters of 
reference should come from professors or practitioners 
familiar with the student's academic ability. Students 
faiUng to meet the standard graduate admissions criteria 
may also be considered on a conditional basis of ac- 
ceptance. Contact the School of Graduate Studies to 
receive a catalog and appUcation material. 

Exit Requirement 

The MPA program offers some degree of flexibility for 
exit from this program. AH students are required to fulfill 
an exit requirement which in most cases will require 
passing a written comprehensive examination. This one- 
day examination allows program faculty to test students' 
mastery of fundamental principles and issues covered 
in the core curriculum. Students must have completed 
at least 30 hours of the degree program to sit for the 
examination and will have two opportunities to pass the 
examination. In appropriate circumstances, such as a stu- 
dent interested in pursuing further graduate work at the 
doctoral level, a master's thesis may be substituted for 
the comprehensive examination. The master's thesis will 
be directed by a committee of three faculty members 
and be covered under the guideUnes and regulations of 
the School of Graduate Studies at Bridgewater State 
College. 



Distinctive Features of the Program 

Professional development modules 

The program requires that students register for a mini- 
mum of three 15 hour, one credit modules, offered each 
semester on topics of special relevance to public service. 
Normally these modules are taught on Saturdays during 
the semester. 

Internships 

A six-hour internship experience at the local, state or 
federal level is required for all preprofessional students 
and will be available as an elective (3 or 6 hours) for 
those professionals who wish to enhance their back- 
ground. 

Scheduling 

To meet the needs of in-career professionals, both at 
Bridgewater and at off-site locations, courses in the pro- 
gram are offered primarily in the evening, once a week 
for three hours. Occasional intensive weekend courses 
are also available, as well as a summer schedule of courses 
which meet three times a week for eight weeks.

GRADUATE PROGRAM 



Graduate Program Coordinator: Dr. Michael Murtagh 



Master of Arts 

The Department of Psychology offers a graduate 
program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in 
Psychology. This program, which prepares the student to 
sit for the examination for licensure as a mental health 
counselor in Massachusetts, equips students to help indi- 
viduals who may have a variety of behavioral, cognitive 
and emotional challenges. It may also serve as a step-

School of Arts and Sciences 

ida/ as that information supersedes the published version of this catalog. 



The Master of Arts in Psychology is a clinical program 
with a curriculum designed to provide a firm founda- 
tion in the understanding of human behavior and clini- 
cal disorders, as well as specific skills in psychotherapy 
and psychological assessment. Research methods and 
statistics are emphasized as essential tools for clinical 
professionals - e.g., in performing clinical outcome 
studies and program evaluations, and in staying current 
with the empirical literature. Students are exposed to 
a range of empirically supported therapeutic methods, 
with special emphasis on cognitive-behavioral tech- 
niques. Experiential learning is an essential component 
of the program, with 15 credits of practica and intern- 
ships required. 

Each applicant will be examined in light of his or her own 
academic record as well as work related experience. All ap- 
plicants must submit GRE General test scores, three letters 
of recommendation, undergraduate transcript(s) and work 
related history. Applicants must possess an undergraduate 
degree in either psychology or a closely related field. Since 
enrollment is limited, successful candidates should have a 
minimum of 3.0 GPA as an undergraduate, above aver- 
age GRE scores and some experience in the field. Final 
candidates will also receive a personal interview from the 
Admissions Committee. 



Requirements for the Degree 

Students must complete a minimum of 61 approved 
graduate credits for the Master of Arts in Psychol- 
ogy. Students must complete a written comprehensive 
examination before graduation; students who complete

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Bachelor of Science 

The Department of Social Work offers an undergraduate 
program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. A 
minor in social welfare is also available. The curriculum 
is designed to prepare students for beginning general- 
ist professional practice in social work and other human 
service fields. Students learn social work methods, skills, 
theories, values, and ethics for practice with various pop- 
ulations and, most especiaOy, with the region's diverse 
and vulnerable populations. The program builds on a 
liberal arts perspective, providing students with a founda- 
tion for critical thinking, effective communication, and 
ethical behavior that will be of daily importance to them 
in professional practice. 

Career opportunities are vast and varied and include child 
protective services, juvenile justice and mental health 
workers; domestic abuse, family court and probation of- 



ficers; residential counselor and patient advocate. Social 
work majors also complete the program well prepared 
for graduate study and may be eligible for consideration 
for advanced standing at some graduate schools of social 
work. 

The college's social work department is accredited by 
the Council on Social Work Education, allowing gradu- 
ates to apply for social work Ucensure in Massachusetts 
at the licensed social worker (LSW) level after complet- 
ing their bachelor's degree. 

The program integrates theory with field experience 
through required courses held in conjunction with 
a variety of community social service agencies. The 
Introduction to Social Welfare course acquaints students 
with the field as they participate in community service 
in a social service agency. In Junior Fieldwork Practice 
(SCWK 398), students spend a minimum of 90 hours 
during one semester at an agency learning how it func- 
tions and about the professional roles of social workers. 
This course lays the foundation for the senior year field 
experience course (SCWK 498). The field experi- 
ence meets from September through May and entails 
a minimum of 410 hours under the supervision of a 
professional social worker at the Master of Social Work 
level. Each of these courses is explained in detail in the 
"Course Descriptions" section of this catalog.

GRADUATE PROGRAM 



Acting Graduate Program Coordinators: Dr. Gary Calhoun 
and Dr. Anna Martin-Jearld 

Master in Social Work 

Mission 

Bridgcwater State College's Master in Social Work 
(MSW) program reflects the purposes of social work 
education nationally and internationally. The mission 
of the MSW program is to prepare advanced profes- 
sional practitioners to address regional needs, promote 
social justice, and enhance the strengths and resilience 



of communities, families and individuals. The program 
will prepare advanced professionals who are grounded 
in resilience theory and a strengths-based approach for 
intergenerational practice. This approach will work with 
client systems by building and reinforcing what is going 
right for people, and by using the chent's strengths and 
resources to address areas of concern. Attention is given 
to the intergenerational system, to identify what can 
be done to effect change and strengthen relationships 
among individuals, groups, and community components 
in order to promote greater self-sufficiency and con- 
structive fimctioning. 

The Curriculum 

In order to prepare graduates to work successfully with a 
variety of client systems often presenting multiple, com- 
plex problems, the MSW program provides a resilience 
theory and strengths-based approach for intergenera- 
tional practice that incorporates content on the pro- 
fession's history, purpose and philosophy and a specific 
body of knowledge, values and skills. The curriculum 
emphasizes critical and creative thinking that enables 
alurrmi to initiate, adapt and evaluate interactions for the 
demographic and cultural groups in our region. 

The foundation year includes 30 credits with content 
on social work values and ethics, diversity and social 
and economic justice, human behavior and the social 
environment, social welfare policy and services, social 
work practice, research and a field practicum. First year 
students wiU take the foUowing courses:

The advanced year, with 38 credits, broadens and 
deepens the foundation content while offering stu- 
dents choices among modules or quarter courses that 
introduce the skills needed to work with particularly 



School of Arts and Sciences 



vulnerable populations. In some instances, quarter 
courses may be combined with semester-long courses. 
Students may also use these electives to take graduate 
courses outside the Social Work Department, such as 
those in the Master of Public Administration, Master of 
Science in Management, Master of Education in Health 
Promotion or other approved master's degree. 

The advanced year also offers an integrated seminar 
that will require students to draw on their foundation 
course work in human behavior in the social environ- 
ment, research, policy and practice. The course wiO fo- 
cus on two or three issues confronted by communities, 
families and/or individuals, such as the impact of man- 
aged care, confronting childhood poverty, or approaches 
to working with immigrants. Second year students take 
the following courses:

Part-Time Program 

Students electing to complete the MSW degree on a 
part-time basis must do so in three years, beginning 
in the fall semester. Designed for students who work 
during the day, the program offers classes in the evening 
and on weekends. 

Admissions: The admissions process involves the fol- 
lowing components: 

1 . A completed application to the MSW program, 
available through the School of Graduate Studies. 
Applications are due on Feb. 1 for fall matriculation. 

2. An updated resume 

3. Official transcripts from all undergraduate and 
graduate programs attended 

4. A personal statement about interest in master's-level 
social work practice 



5. Three letters of reference, ideally from supervisors, 
faculty members and others able to attest to the 
applicant's readiness to undertake graduate education 
in social work 

6. Standardized test scores such as the GREs and the 
MAT are not required, but students are welcome to 
submit such scores. 

The admission committee's decision wiU be based on the 
applicant's demonstrated academic ability, interpersonal 
skills, and self- awareness — indicators of the likelihood 
that the applicant can successfully complete the program. 
In addition, evidence of a commitment to the social 
work profession and to the mission of the Bridgewater 
State College MSW program, and of the likely con- 
tribution the applicant might make to the citizens of 
Southeastern Massachusetts will be assessed. Social work 
requires the ability to withstand difficult emotional chal- 
lenges, to work with people whose cultural backgrounds 
and/or personal values differ from one's own, and to 
practice in a demanding and changing political and fiscal 
environment. Special attributes such as linguistic abil- 
ity compatible with those in the region, a demonstrated 
commitment working with underserved populations, 
and particular skills such as those in research and policy 
implementation wiU be considered. 

Advanced Standing: Student seeking to enter the 
program in the second year with full advanced stand- 
ing must meet all of the requirements listed above. In 
addition they must have earned a BSW or BA/BS in 
social work degree from a CSWE-accredited program 
within the last six years, with a minimum GPA of 3.0. 
Students who completed their BSW degrees more than 
six years ago will be evaluated individually to determine 
their preparedness for year II. Applicants who wish to 
transfer into the MSW program after completing year I 
elsewhere will also be considered for advanced standing. 
Students entering with full advanced standing will begin 
their course work in the suinmer.

SOCIOLOGY 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Sociology 

The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology is the scientific 



study of human social relationships. It allows individuals 
to understand the connections between their own 
experiences and the society in which they live. In 
carrying on social life human beings interact with each 
other and construct patterns of relationships, groups, 
classes, institutions, and societies. Individuals shape those 
patterns and those patterns, in turn, shape individuals 
and their lives. In fact, the central insight of sociology 
is that social relationships and social interactions shape 
human behavior, attitudes, and resources. 

Sociology courses provide students with an understand- 
ing of how these social relationships arise, why they 
persist, what effects they have, and how they maintain 
social order or contribute to social change. Students 
learn the theories and research methods used in sociol- 
ogy. Students have opportunities to engage in collab- 
orative research with faculty members or to participate 
in internships. These opportunities enable students to 
deepen and apply what they have learned in classes and 
enhances their opportunities in the labor market or in 
graduate school.

The school conducts an on-going review of profes- 
sional standards and requirements in order to respond 
to the changing needs of the profession. Graduates of

programs leading to the professional stage of licensure 
and other graduate course work, educators strengthen 
their leadership abihties and their commitment to life- 
long learning. 

E.xtensive field experiences in schools and agencies 
contribute to the development of meaningful Hnkages 
between study and practice. Procedures and guidelines 
are implemented to ensure that high quality standards are 
maintained in field-based experiences and that students 
have experiences working in settings with diverse popula- 
tions of children and youth.

General Admission Criteria for the Counseling 
Programs 

The counselor education faculty seek to admit students 
who will become highly effective professional counsel- 
ors. As such, the faculty look at each student's applica- 
tion as a whole and do not exclude students based on 
any one criterion. Students must submit a complete 
apphcation by Oct. 1 for a spring semester admission 
and March 1 for a summer/ fall semester admission. In 
addition to the admission standards set by the college 
there are general admission criteria for counseling that 
are based on state and national standards outlined below. 
Specific program admission requirements are identi- 
fied under individual program options on the following 
pages. 

• Each apphcant is reviewed by counselor educa- 
tion faculty who serve on the Counseling 
Programs Committee; 

• Each apphcant must demonstrated success in 
forming effective interpersonal relationships in 
individual and small group contexts; 

• Each applicant must demonstrate aptitude for 
graduate-level study; 

• Each apphcant must provide career goals and 
objectives and their relevance to their chosen 
program and

• Each applicant must demonstrate openness to 
self-examination and personal and professional 
self-development. 

Students are conditionally admitted to one counsel- 
ing program. All students must successfully complete 
the four core requirements (CNGC 510, CNGC 528, 
CNGC 529. CNGC 500) to be considered as a masters 
candidate. Matriculating students who desire to change 
programs must file a formal petition with the Coun- 
seling Programs Committee and meet all admission 
requirements of the desired program. A student whose 
petition is approved, must adhere to the specific pro- 
gram requirements in place at the time of approval. 

The counselor education faculty actively seeks to recruit ap- 
plicants with diverse backgrounds. 

Counseling Program Planning 

All accepted students must attend an orientation for 
new students and meet with their faculty adviser upon 
acceptance. 

Prospective candidates who have not been formally 
accepted into the program are urged to confine their 
selection of courses to the four "core" courses (CNGC 
510, CNGC 528, CNGC 529, CNGC 500). 

The Department takes very seriously its responsibil- 
ity and commitment to train professional and ethical 
counselors, and to "protect the pubHc good". Faculty are 
committed to supporting student success, and provid- 
ing remedial interventions, when needed. However, 
the Department also recognizes that there will be a 
small number of students, for whom it becomes clear 
that transitioning out of the program is necessary. The 
Department has written a Learning Contract, which re- 
flects ACA ethical standards, college guidelines, depart- 
ment expectations and requirements, as well as the pro- 
cedures which will be followed in response to academic, 
personal, and /or professional student-related concerns 
which may arise. During the new student orientation 
experience, the Departments Learning Contract will be 
reviewed and discussed with all students; students will 
sign and receive a hard copy of the contract. Students 
must sign and receive a copy of the Learning Contract 
to continue to take courses as a matriculated student. 
The contract will also be posted on each of the De- 
partment's program-specific Blackboard virtual sites. 
A signed copy will be put in the student's file at the 
School of Graduate Studies. 



Students must receive a grade of B- or higher in each 
graduate course or fieldwork experience; students who 
receive a grade lower than a B- must repeat the course. 
In addition, students who receive a grade of "F" in any 
course will be dismissed from the program. Lastly, stu- 
dents must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or they will be placed 
on academic probation as outhned in the graduate 
student handbook. 

Fieldwork Experiences 

Field experiences (e.g., practicum or internship) are 
required of all matriculated students. Depending on the 
counseling program, students complete between 700 
and 1000 hours of supervised field work experience. 
Each student, in conjunction with an academic adviser, 
selects an appropriate site and is supervised by an on-site 
professional while meeting with a Bridgewater State 
College faculty member for a field work seminar. Most 
importantly, students must submit a field work appli- 
cation to the field work director to participate in any 
field work experience. Field work applications must be 
completed by April 1 for the fall and summer semesters 
and by November 1 for the spring semester. 

Comprehensive Exams 

Written comprehensive examinations are administered in 
November and March. The examination, which requires 
integrating theory and practice in the student's matricu- 
lated counselor education program is taken during the 
student's field work experience. Previous examinations 
are on the various counseling programs Blackboard sites.

Career Opportunities 

The physical education major program is an arts and 
science major. Career opportunities are tied to the 
concentrations where a student develops knowledge and 
application of that knowledge in a professional capacity. 

The health education major can work in schools, public 
health agencies, nonprofit organizations, hospitals, col- 
leges and universities, business and industry. 



UNDERGRADUATE 
PROGRAMS 



Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science 

The Department of Movement Arts, Health Promotion 
and Leisure Studies offers the physical education major 
an opportunin- to elect an area of study from among 
eight concentrations. In addition, a comprehensive 
health education major may be selected. 

Many of these programs have been developed to pre- 
pare graduates to pursue career opportunities in com- 
munity-based organizations such as business, industry, 
agencies and hospitals. These programs, which include 
field e.xperiences in various settings in the community, 
have expanded the role of the professional in the fields 
of physical education and health promotion beyond the 
teaching environment in schools, thus preparing the 
graduate for new career opportunities. 

Initial teacher licensure programs in both health and 
physical education are also available for those students 
who wish to teach in the public schools. These students 
may elect one of two initial teacher licensure concen- 
trations in physical education (PreK-8) (5-12) or the 
teacher licensure option in the health education major 
(PreK-12). 



Health Education Major 

Health education can lead to the improved health 
status of individuals, families and communities. It 
involves the use of systematic strategics to improve 
health knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors. Health 
educators work in schools, public health agencies, vol- 
untary nonprofit organizations, hospitals, colleges and 
universities, business and industries. 

I he 42-credit health education major is designed to 
guide students though learning experiences that empha- 



size the multiple dimensions of health, and draws on the 
behavioral and natural sciences as well as health science 
and public health. The major is designed to prepare stu- 
dents to design, implement, and evaluate scientifically and 
methodologically sound health education experiences, 
and to equip students with the professional skills that will 
enable them to be proficient practitioners. 

Students wishing to pursue teaching licensure in health/ 
family and consumer sciences must meet the criteria 
for admission to professional education programs. Those 
interested in teacher hcensure should refer to the "Sec- 
ondary Education and Professional Programs" section of 
this catalog.

ences, Chemical Sciences, Geography and Physics. This 
emphasis is designed to prepare students for graduate 
studies in oceanography. 

Most graduate schools of oceanography require an 
undergraduate major in biology, chemistry, earth sci- 
ences or physics. All students interested in an oceanog- 
raphy program should major in one of these disciplines. 
Graduate schools of oceanography expect students to 
include most of the following courses (or comparable 
ones) in their undergraduate programs: Calculus I and

Interdisciplinary and Preprofessional Programs 



These courses, together with one of the majors indi- 
cated above, provide the basic foundation for further 
study in one of the four principal branches of oceanog- 
raphy: biological oceanography, chemical oceanography, 
geological oceanography and physical oceanography. 
A student who is interested in oceanography should 
consult both his/her major adviser and one of the 
oceanography advisers before registering for courses in 
his/her freshman year or as soon as possible thereafter. 
Oceanography advisers are: Dr. Peter Saccocia (Earth 
Sciences); Dr. Frank Gorga (Chemistry); Dr. John Ja- 
hoda (Biology). 

Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre- Veteri- 
nary AND Other Medically Oriented

Women's and Gender SxuDms Minor 

Women's and gender studies at Bridgewater State Col- 
lege was established in 1983, and is part of a rapidly 
growing course of study nationwide. Women's and 
gender studies is an interdisciplinary minor which com- 
bines the analytical tools of different disciplines such as 
anthropology, psychology, sociology, literature, history, 
philosophy, etc., when studying the world. 

Women's and gender studies is dedicated to the study 
of women and gender. Gender is the idea of difference 
between the sexes, and all the assumptions, stereotypes 
and expectations that accompany these ideas. The minor 
looks at women and gender issues around the world, 
but since gender does not give a full understanding to 
women's lives, we consider other factors such as race, 
class, culture and sexuaHty.The minor combines these 
tools and areas of interest into what we call an "integra- 
tive analysis." The objective is to introduce students 



to analytical tools and basic approaches to the study of 
women in a variety of fields. 

Students in the women's and gender studies have found 
that a minor in women's and gender studies enhances 
their major curriculum by broadening their lens of 
inquiry, encouraging them to ask new and meaningful 
questions about women and men, and seeing the world 
in a more meaningful way. Students of women's and 
gender studies go on to graduate school in women's and 
gender studies and in other disciplines, become teachers, 
librarians, attorneys, writers, reporters, labor organizers, 
social workers, counselors, ministers, performers, mid- 
wives, doctors and more. 

Women's and Gender Studies Minor 

Students are required to take six women's and gender 
studies courses to complete the women's and gender 
studies minor, including:
